JANUARY 2021

VIRTUAL EVENT 'BEDROOMS, BANQUETS AND BALLS'  

The Cultural & Current Affairs Committee are holding a zoom event on Monday 25 January at 7.30 p.m. prompt.

John Vigar will talk to us about “Bedrooms, Banquets and Balls”

John is a former Denman tutor, and this off-beat and amusing talk looks at the development of the English Country House from medieval times to the mid twentieth century. He covers the architecture of the houses, their furnishings and the way in which the rooms were used in different periods.

We will also hear about the eccentric and memorable people who lived in these buildings and discover how their whims fashioned the houses we see today. He promises we will hear about exploding cakes, tight mistresses and exotic princes.

There will be a charge of £5 for the event, please contact the office via email accounts@wi-shropshire.co.uk to book and obtain payment details.  The zoom link/password will be sent out a couple of days before the event.
