The Day Parliament Burned Down

The Day Parliament Burned Down

In the evening of 16 October 1834 the roof of the Houses of Parliament caught fire, a blaze so huge it was visible from Windsor Castle and stagecoaches on the South Downs. Author Caroline Shenton - specialist in the history, art and architecture of Parliament - takes her audience through the gripping hour-by-hour story of the fire, its devastating aftermath and far-reaching consequences.

An illustrated talk arranged by Evesham Decorative & Fine Arts Society.
