Art historian, curator, writer, broadcaster and landscape designer Sir Roy Strong, will talk about The Quest for Shakespeare’s Garden. This talk, presented by Hay Castle and the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust, will trace the origins of garden history and the Elizabethan garden, as well as tell the story of the Bard's own garden in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Sir Roy Strong was Director of the National Portrait Gallery from 1967 to 1973, and was Director of the V&A from 1973 until 1987. He is a regular contributor to both radio and television and an expert in garden and landscape design having designed and consulted for Prince of Wales, Gianni Versace and Sir Elton John. He lives in Herefordshire where he and his late wife designed and planted what has been described as the largest formal garden to be created in the UK since 1945.
