 Art Deco Britain with Elain Harwood

Thursday 18th June 18.15 for 18.30 start

With the publication of Elain Harwood’s much-awaited book Art Deco Britain, we’re delighted to announce that Elain is repeating her keynote talk on the subject via Zoom. Covering many aspects of the book – the arrival of the glamorous style into the Britain in the late 1920s and its use in cinema, hotel, theatre and factory design – Elain is sure to give an rich summary of the style, its enduring fascination to new generations, and the role of the C20 Society in helping to secure the future of many Art Deco buildings.

We’ll send you a Zoom link by email after you book, which will enable you to “join” the event, and we’ll be using the Q&A function to take questions. If you’ve not used Zoom before, clicking on the Zoom link will take you through the set up process, hopefully simply and smoothly!  You should receive an automated link within an hour of booking so please check your spam/junk emails if you haven't received this.  Any further problems please contact

The event is free but we welcome donations towards C20’s campaigning here.
