Francis Roberts Day


The Twentieth Century Society have designated 16 October 2010 ‘Francis Roberts Day’. There will be a coach tour of buildings by Francis Roberts in Lancaster, Preston and Blackpool. Francis will be there to illuminate and explain.

Apparently there has been a problem with the booking system at the Twentieth Century Society which is advertising the tour as ‘full’. If you have had problems booking but you would like to take part please contact Aidan Turner-Bishop on 01772 824154 or aidantb@phonecoop.coop for a place.
