The Royal Academy’s Burlington House is full of hidden stories. Dr Neil Bingham has been uncovering many of these in his exploration of Samuel Ware’s drawings of the mansion in 1812–18. These drawings reveal how Ware’s designs paid homage to the original historical character of Burlington House – a rare and beautiful revival of English Neo-Palladianism.
Reynolds Room; 6.30–7.30pm; £14/£6* (includes lecture, exhibition entry and a drink), £10 (includes lecture and a drink)
