2 Temple Place - 2019 Exhibition

Those of you who visited the Sussex Modernism exhibition at 2 Temple Place in 2017 may like to know that this year's event is inspired by John Ruskin, on the bicentenary of his birth in 1819.

This year's exhibition runs from 26th January to 22 April 2019. More information below.

2 Temple Place Tour 10 April 2017

The EHRCA organised a very successful tour of 2 Temple Place, the Victorian Gothic building located between the site of Electra House and the Temple.

2 Temple Place was the former Estate Office of William Waldorf Astor, and is now owned by the Bulldog Trust, which holds regular exhibitions and corporate events there. Eagle-eyed visitors may recognise the interior from such TV shows as Downton Abbey and Mr Selfridge, and movies such as Bridget Jones Diary.

The guided tour took place during the then exhibition at 2 Temple Place  - "Sussex Modernism - Retreat and Rebellion". Sussex played host to a number of British and international artists and writers in the early 20th century, among them Salvador Dali, Vanessa Bell, Eric Gill and Henry Moore.

After a very interesting tour, members retired for refreshment to suitable hostelries in the vicinity.
