THE DEVELOPMENT OF BRITISH STYLE + DESERT ISLAND ANTIQUES & LIFE ON THE ANTIQUES ROADSHOW

From 9.30am until 4pm

At The Menuhin Hall

Cobham Road, Stoke d'Abernon, KT11 3QQ

Organiser: Speaker – Paul Atterbury

From the 1870s the British domestic house and its contents changed almost beyond recognition, reflecting the
social and economic revolution that paved the way for the modern world of today. Many factors contributed to this
change, from William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement, to the rise of the department store, suburban
living, the garden and the emancipation of women. After the First World War, the pace of change increased,
prompting rapid stylistic development, from 1920s and 1930s Art Deco to the modernism of the 1950s and 1960s
and the style wars of the late 20th century. The first two talks consider architecture, interior and domestic design
and the products that reflected the fashions of the time. In the process they show how the last 150 years have
determined the way we live now.
Paul Atterbury has been involved all his life in the world of art and antiques, as a writer, historian, collector
and exhibition curator. The two talks in the afternoon offer an insight into his life, his enthusiasms and his time as a
member of BBC's Antiques Roadshow team of experts.
