PUBLISHED: 18:30 12 July 2016
A five-day festival of literature is coming up at A la Ronde – the 16-sided 18th-century house just outside Exmouth – from Saturday, July 23, to Wednesday, July 27.
Part of A la Ronde’s Writing Places programme, one of the festival highlights is an audience with architectural broadcaster, writer and photographer Lucinda Lambton.
This takes place on Saturday, July 23, when she will talk about A la Ronde and the Parminter cousins (who had the house built for them in the 18th century).
Lambton has researched, written and presented some 55 films for the BBC, as well as around 25 for ITV.
They include On the Throne - The History of the Lavatory; The Great North Road (the architectural wonders from Edinburgh to London), A Cabinet of Curiosities (strange collections, such as jewels made from the thighs of flies, that were the foundations of Britain’s museums) and The Other House of Windsor (The Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s house in Paris).
An Audience with Lucinda Lambton runs from 6.30pm to 9pm on Saturday, July 23. Tickets are available online from the National Trust website, £15 plus a 75p booking fee. There is also a limited number of tickets available in the A la Ronde shop for £15.
