Victorian Society – William Burges: Extraordinary buildings immersed in the middle ages

9 March - 19:00 - 20:30

William ‘Billy’ Burges was short, fat, eccentric and bad-tempered. He was also a genius who created some of the most extraordinary buildings of the nineteenth century. Immersed in the world of the Middle Ages, he designed churches, castles, bridges, interiors, furniture, textiles, metalwork and jewellery for his few, equally individual clients. Matthew Williams was for many years curator of one of Burges’s greatest creations, Cardiff Castle. His book Cardiff Castle and the Marquesses of Bute was published in 2019.

23 March - 19:00 - 20:30

Few nineteenth-century Edinburgh architects demonstrated such a plurality of style, from Scottish Baronial to French Château to Neo-classicism to Baroque, as did David Bryce. And he did Gothic too.
