BBC QUESTION Time presenter David Dimbleby, who lives in Folkington near Polegate, will chair a discussion on architecture at Brighton Festival.
Called, ‘The Cult of The Ruin’, the discussion will focus on whether obsession with past and period architecture obscures our view of the future. The event is being run by the University of Brighton with Brighton Festival at 7.30pm in the Sallis Benney Theatre in Grand Parade, Brighton, on May 25. Mr Dimbleby has an honorary degree from the university. On his panel will be Paul Finch, deputy chair of the Design Council; Ros Kerslake, chief executive of the Prince’s Regeneration Trust; and architect Sunand Prasad.
