Talk: Simon Inglis on “Played in Richmond”– sport and recreation since 1666
Simon Inglis is an author and architectural historian specialising in sport. Based in north west London since 1984, he has written a number of books on stadiums, sporting architecture and football history and gives regular lectures to a wide variety of organisations, clubs and educational institutions.
He is a passionate and entertaining speaker on Britain’s sporting heritage, especially its historic sports architecture and landscapes. In his illustrated talk, “Played in Richmond” – sport and recreation since 1666, he will be looking in particular at our local area.
Born and brought up in Birmingham, Simon Inglis wrote his first words on football and football grounds at the age of six, following a visit to Villa Park. He went on to study History and the History of Architecture at University College London, trained as a teacher in Leeds, taught history at a comprehensive school in Walthamstow and travelled in Central and South America before becoming a freelance journalist in Manchester.
