Exhibitions at Kent History and Library Centre

To attend one of our free exhibitions please visit the Kent History and Library Centre.

Capability Brown in Kent

1 July - 31 July 2017

A free exhibition in collaboration with the Kent Gardens Trust (KGT), combining the KGT’s travelling display of Brown’s work at Chilham Castle, Ingress, Valence, Leeds Abbey and North Cray Place, together with original selections from Kent History and Library Centre’s historic collections.

We hope to repeat the success of our Hopping down in Kent, an exhibition produced in collaboration with Screen Archive South East in 2016, with a display on the theme of ‘Coast and Sea’, again produced in partnership with SASE, and again with some talks to complement the exhibition, in the late summer or autumn. Further details to be confirmed.
