Forthcoming Friends’ Events

Summer Outing to Gawsworth Hall 11 June 2018
The Friends summer outing will be a visit to Gawsworth Old Hall on Monday, June 11th, meeting there at 1.30pm.  This is an exclusive visit, as the House will not be open to the public on that day.
Gawsworth Hall is an old timber-framed house, built around1480. It has been the home of the Richards family since the 1930s and our visit will begin with an introductory talk by a member of the family. We will then be free to wander round this beautiful house and gardens at our leisure, before meeting up in the attractive tea rooms for coffee and tea, with scones, jam and cream.

Tickets will be available after Easter and will be £14 to members of the Friends. You are welcome to bring guests at £16 a ticket.
