Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum & Village Set in rural Wiltshire, Lacock village is famous for its picturesque streets, historic buildings and more recently as a TV and film location. The Abbey, located at the heart of the village within its own woodland grounds, is a quirky country house of various architectural styles, built upon the foundations of a former nunnery. Visitors can experience the atmosphere of the medieval rooms and cloister court, giving a sense of the Abbey's monastic past. The museum celebrates the achievements of former Lacock resident, William Henry Fox Talbot, famous for his contributions to the invention of photography. On a day out in Lacock there is plenty for you to see and do.

Gallery for Russian Arts and Design Chaired by Prof John Milner, of the Courtauld Institute of Art, the event examined the designs of Constructivist artists Lissitzky, Klucis, Rodchenko and Tatlin, as well as discussing the idea of reconstruction as embodied by the works of Henry Milner. Speakers included museum curators, such as Willem Jan Renders from the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven and Maria Tsantsanoglou from the Costakis Collection, Thessaloniki, as well as academics such as Christina Lodder, of the University of Kent, Canterbury.
