Renowned sculptor of the newly unveiled Queen Mother Statue, Philip Jackson will be giving the illustrated talk, Making History in Bronze, at the Brownsword Hall on Friday, 25th November from 7pm to 7.30pm.
The iconic statue now stands proudly in the centre of Queen Mother Square and is the exact casting of the Queen Mother’s statue that stands in the Mall.
It was chosen by The Prince of Wales who described the sculpture as “a fitting tribute to my darling grandmother.”
The statue shows the Queen Mother at the age of 51, when she was widowed, although she did go on to live another 50 years.
Philip Jackson met the Queen Mother when she was 100, to present her with a statue of her late husband King George VI.
In an exclusive interview with Celebrating Poundbury, Philip said: “Meeting the Queen Mother at the time was incredibly useful because one could see what a great spirit she was. Even at that age she was a remarkable example of how you can live life to the full, right to the very end.”
Making History In Bronze runs at the Brownsword Hall on Friday, 25th November. Advance tickets are £6 and on the night £7.
Tickets available from Rivoli and Poundbury Garden Centre. Or you can book online at brownswordevents.org.uk
