The legacy of the Turners

The ‘Father of English Botany” will be celebrated in the William Turner Symposium.

The event to recognise one of Morpeth’s most famous sons will be held on Saturday in the Chantry, Bridge Street.

And as 2014 is the 400th anniversary of the death of Turner’s son Peter, a physician himself, it will explore the legacy left by both men. There will also be discussion of ongoing projects linked to Turner research, and the studies of George Chapman.

The symposium runs from 10am to 1pm and costs £5. Booking is essential on 01670 623509.
