A "PALACE of Art" will be the main topic of conversation at a talk given by a architecture expert.

Malcolm Youngs will be talking about Red House and the artist William Morris at the Local Studies and Archive Centre in the central library in Bexleyheath, on Thursday, May 20, at 7.15pm.

Red House was commissioned by Morris in 1859 and designed by Philip Webb. Morris wanted a "palace of art" in which he and his friends could enjoy making art. Many artists and writers of the period visited, including siblings Dante and Christina Rossetti, Augustus Welby Pugin and Gwen John.

Tickets are £3.50 and can be bought via 020 8836 7369.
