Based on his seminal book The English Way of Death: The Common Funeral from 1450, leading funerary historian Dr Julian Litten will trace the history of the English funeral from the pomp and panoply of the post-medieval period to the clinical anonymity of present-day ceremonies.

Guests can enjoy a free glass of wine on arrival and an after-hours visit to the exhibition Death and Memory: Soane and the Architecture of Legacy.
