The Forbidden City: The Secrets of China’s Imperial Palace and Museum

Anne Haworth Friday 09 November 2018

The two lectures are from 10:30am to 1pm, with tea/coffee served beforehand and during the interval, at the usual venue of The Menuhin Hall in Cobham. 

The Forbidden City, or Imperial Palace, is the world’s largest palace complex, with more than 800 buildings and some 8,000 rooms set in the heart of Beijing. These two lectures will help us to discover its rich history from the 15th century (when it was built as the palace of the Ming emperors of China), until the present day, when it has been a museum since the 1920s.

      Ticket - £19 per person   (includes coffee/tea upon arrival and during the interval)
