Art-Architect Billy Burges created some of the most fabulous and fantastical buildings of the 19th century from churches to castles. In both his life and work he was highly individual, referred to by one of his clients as “Ugly Burges who designs lovely things. Isn’t he a duck.” We will look at his life, architecture, and decorative arts, some of which can be seen at the Higgins Art Gallery & Museum in Bedford.
