Mon, 26 November, AGM starts at 5:45pm sharp (doors open 5:30pm) John Grindrod's talks 6:45pm for 7:15pm start. 

Join us on Monday 26 November for the Leeds Civic Trust Annual Meeting when John Grindrod will take us on a journey around ‘Ten Buildings that Changed Post-War Britain’. We are assured that some Leeds buildings will be on the list! A discussion will follow what is guaranteed to be a lively and enjoyable event.

Brutalism, modernism, design and social history are all in a days work for John Grindrod. You may know him as the author of Outskirts: Living Life on the Edge of the Green Belt, Concretopia: A Journey Around the Rebuilding of Postwar Britain and How To Love Brutalism.

He has written for publications including the Sunday Times, Guardian, Financial Times, Big Issue and The Modernist. He has given talks at the V&A, RA, Southbank Centre, RIBA, Museum of London, Tate Liverpool and a number of universities, and we’re delighted that the Trust will be added to this illustrious list.

The talk will be preceded by the Trust's AGM which begins at 5:45pm sharp, with business completed by 6:45pm. Refreshments and canapes will then be served prior to John's talk, which starts at 7:15pm.

Please let us know if you plan to attend the AGM, the talk or both by reserving your place.
