Sir Roy Strong CH FRSL
Sir Roy Strong, former director of the National Portrait Gallery, 1967-1973, director of the V&A until, 1974-1987 and patron of the Broadway Arts Festival since 2014 is famed as an author, broadcaster, art historian, garden designer, diarist, expert on Indian palaces, and flamboyant dresser. His passions include scholarship, church conservation, Englishness, the monarchy, his garden at the Laskett and costumes.
Always informed and witty, occasionally deliciously indiscrete, Sir Roy never fails to entertain. We look forward to his lively conversation with current Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Nicholas Cullinan on Friday 12th June as past and present innovative and progressive directors of this revered establishment discuss their own visions for the future of the home the most extensive collection of portraits in the world.
