What would you do with a £20 note?

The picture of a person on a bank note can be an image that blends into the background of daily life. For the featured character however, and especially for the people and places that may be connected with that person; being featured can bring valuable focus, attention and support.

The next £20 note will celebrate Britain’s achievements in the visual arts, which includes designers, architects and craftspeople. The Bank of England would like the public to nominate who they would like to feature on the back of the £20 note – it can take less than 60 seconds to vote.

Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown I feel fits the bill perfectly, and with his appropriately timed CB300 Tercentenary Festival approaching in 2016, what better time to show a little extra support for England’s Greatest Historical Gardener.

Brown’s artistic contribution to 200+ landscape gardens and parks continue to be enjoyed daily by people breathing deeply, are filled with valuable flora and  fauna, and are an important part of Britains allure to tourists. Making the £20 note a ‘Brown Note’ will trigger people’s awareness and support, and bring valuable support for heritage landscapes and gardens of all types.

A Vote for Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown is a vote for heritage and gardening in Britain, you know it makes sense 😉

About Lancelot Capability Brown

Hello and Welcome to my Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown blog! I thrive on the richness and diversity found within our historic gardens and landscapes and I hope through this blog to paint a picture of Lancelot Brown’s 18th Century world, his landscapes and life. I’d like this blog to spread the Brownian word far and wide, so please join in, suggest post subjects, send in potential articles or links to anything and everything with 'Capability'. I’ll also be looking forward to the Capability Brown Tercentenary Celebration of his birth in 2016, and look forward to an incredible year where the work of Brown can receive more praise and recognition than ever before. I've also launched a Twitter account under the title of @Brown2016 where for the next few years I plan to help spread the word and at the very least play my part in the build-up to a special year for all who enjoy landscape gardening in its true form. All views are my own and do not represent those of any organisation.
