The day will begin with a reception in the Langford Room at midday, followed by Lunch in Hall at 12.45pm. We will then enjoy a presentation from Child Shuffrey Fellow in Architectual History, Dr Mark Kirby, entitled 'Lincoln College Chapel; a seventeenth-century architectural gem'.

Dr Mark Kirby
The programme of restoration of the College Chapel is now complete, and shows the Chapel to its finest. Almost unchanged since the late-seventeenth century, it is a fascinating example of grand Calvinist architecture. This seeming contradiction in terms can be attributed in large part to John Williams, the Bishop of Lincoln who gave the Chapel to the College. Dr Mark Kirby, Child Shuffrey Fellow in Architectural History, will explore the design and history of the Chapel, and will reveal in what circumstances one might spend £16,000 on fabric, lace and buttons.
