Philip Webb Centenary events
Throughout 2015 we will mark the centenary of the death of the SPAB’s co-founder Philip Webb with a series of members-only events and activities. Philip Speakman Webb is often referred to as the father of Arts & Crafts architecture. All our events will shine a spotlight on the life and work of Webb.
