For Sir John Soane, Pitzhanger’s gardens were as important as the Manor, which he designed as a space for hospitality and entertainment centred around food. In his kitchen gardens, he grew a variety of herbs and vegetables, and he kept the lake stocked with fish not only to provide dinner but also an opportunity for social interaction. Drawing on the detailed records of Soane and his wife Eliza’s diaries, this talk will explore the major role that food played in their life.

Clare Gough is Director of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, Sir John Soane’s ‘country’ house in Ealing, west London and its adjacent contemporary gallery. Pitzhanger reopened to the public in March 2019 with an acclaimed Anish Kapoor sculpture exhibition in the Gallery, following a three year, award -winning restoration of the Manor to Soane’s original design, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, Ealing Council and many others. It runs a programme of exciting exhibitions, diverse speakers and events, and extensive learning and outreach initiatives to engage local schools and communities. Clare’s career combines experience of the arts and commercial sectors. She was previously a Trustee of the Museum of the Home, Director of Communications at the National Gallery, and New Media Director at National Gallery Co. Ltd, before setting up an arts consultancy working with the V&A and other institutions.
