2016 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of the landscape architect Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. To mark this tercentenary the Heritage Lottery Fund has supported a festival of activities, open days, and resources under the banner ‘CB300’.
The festival’s objectives are to:
• Celebrate Capability Brown as an artist and landscape designer.
• Encourage an increased number of people and a more diverse audience to visit, learn about and enjoy Brown’s landscapes.
• Commission a range of interesting and innovative projects to encourage sites and people to get involved across the country
• Encourage a greater appreciation of our designed landscape heritage.
