RIBA – ‘Love Architecture’ Festival

‘Love Architecture’ Festival 2012 will be taking part across England and Wales from the 15th – 24th June. The Festival will bring architecture alive with planned events, such as tours, exhibitions, presentations and children’s events. The festival aims to engage the general public in architecture and the built environment – to reveal what makes great architecture, old and new. It hopes to inspire, to inform, to excite!

We are pleased to inform you that the former Winsford Cottage Hospital will be opening its doors on Friday 15th and Sunday 17th June. We welcome visitors to this event for a presentation and tour delivered by the ‘Winsford Trust’, the charitable organisation established in 1999 to restore and preserve the building. Presentation and tours will be conducted at 11.00am and 2.30pm.

All bookings being taken by Eventbrite.

The Winsford Cottage Hospital has good disabled facilities along with designated parking. You will find an over-spill car park at the nearby Village Hall should it be needed.

About RIBA

A key aim of the RIBA is ‘celebrating and promoting the benefits that good architecture brings to society, the economy and the environment.’ The Architecture Festival is an ideal way to achieve this aim and it provides an opportunity for RIBA members, practices, branches and students to engage with the RIBA and external organisations to create activities which demonstrate the importance of Architects and the role that Better Buildings play in improving our society.

Architecture has a role in daily life. It is all the places and spaces we live and work in. It is the buildings, streets, squares and odd little corners that make up our daily environment.
