Innovation & Collaboration: The Early Development of the Pendulum Clock in London Wednesday, 12 September 2018 6pm - 8pm Bonhams, 101 New Bond Street, London W1S 1SR

As detailed in the May Newsletter this exhibition is a carefully curated selection of some of the finest examples of early English clock-making, placing it within the socio-economic context of the time. This exhibition aims to illustrate how London-made clocks and watches surged to world pre-eminence in the thirty years after the Restoration of Charles II in 1660, in parallel to the way London, in the same period, became the world’s foremost commercial centre and mercantile entrepôt. Lecture by Curator Richard Garnier.

COST: £20 (including a glass of wine)

LIMIT: 20

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: Friday, 31 August 2018
