If you have ever visited Snowshill, the National Trust (NT) house in Gloucestershire, you will be intrigued to come on this visit to look at the extensive collection made by Charles Paget Wade, collector and builder of Snowshill, now housed at Berrington Hall.

Curator Althea Mackenzie will take us on a behind the scenes tour. In the house we will view A dress fit for a king, a display of a mid 18th c court mantua worn by Ann, wife of The Hon. Thomas Harley (1730-1804) Lord Mayor of London, who lived at Berrington.

Limited to 10 people

Members 12 (+ entrance fee to Berrington Hall if you are not a NT member)

Please bring a packed lunch.

If you are coming by train, we can arrange lifts from the station.
