Mid-Century Musings: How Terence Conran changed how we live

Mid-Century Musings is a series of ten-minute online talks that offer a glimpse into Mid-Century Modern style and history.

Visionary designer, writer, and businessman Terence Conran (1931-2020) reshaped revolutionised retail, restaurants and modern lifestyle in post-war Britain.

Dovecot are honouring Conran’s vision of a better Britain in our current exhibition Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant which features rare early examples of Conran’s textile and furniture designs.

Join Dovecot Director Celia Joicey to gain an insight on how Conran changed every day British life and discover his lasting legacy.
