NOm­i­na­tions are now open for the Vic­to­rian so­ci­ety’s 2017 top 10 en­dan­gered Build­ings cam­paign, a yearly un­der­tak­ing aimed at sav­ing his­toric ed­i­fices.

You can pro­pose a threat­ened Vic­to­rian or ed­war­dian build­ing by email­ing me­dia@vic­to­ri­anso­ci­ety. org.uk or by post­ing a let­ter to 1, Pri­ory gar­dens, lon­don W4 1tt, with brief de­tails of the build­ing(s) and at least one photo, on or be­fore July 7. Build­ings must be in eng­land or Wales and have been built be­tween 1837 and 1914 to be con­sid­ered and listed build­ings have a higher chance of mak­ing it onto the list. the charity’s ar­chi­tec­ture and con­ser­va­tion ex­perts will then short­list 10 for the height­ened pub­lic­ity that might just save them. the results will be an­nounced on septem­ber 13.

A huge pineap­ple-shaped pavil­ion will grace the gar­dens of Ber­ring­ton Hall in Here­ford­shire from June 10. Heather and Ivan Mori­son’s Look! Look! Look! ex­plores the Ge­or­gian pas­sion for ex­otic fruit and is part of Trust New Art, a joint pro­gramme run by the Na­tional Trust and Arts Coun­cil Eng­land, which sees art in­stal­la­tions and film and the­atri­cal per­for­mances held across a num­ber of Trust prop­er­ties dur­ing the summer (www.na­tion­al­trust. org.uk/ber­ring­ton-hall).
