Lecture: The Thellussons and Brodsworth Hall

Monday 12 February — Turn up or book and save
6.30pm to 8pm. A lecture to be given by Caroline Carr-Whitworth. Fifth in our Private Realms 3 lecture series organised by Steven Brindle.

Brodsworth in South Yorkshire is one of the most remarkable and mysterious of Victorian Classical houses, created for Charles Sabine Thellusson, one of the ultimate beneficiaries of the famous ‘Thellusson will’. Its Italianate design, rich decoration and remarkable collections have an individual quality which set it apart from other houses of its generation. The house and its contents were saved by being transferred to English Heritage in 1990; Caroline Carr-Whitworth, Senior Curator at Brodsworth and the leading authority on the house, reveals its story. At the Art Workers’ Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1 at 6.30pm. Doors open at 6pm and close at 6.25pm. Wine will be available before the lectures (not included in ticket prices). The venue is conveniently placed for Holborn and Russell Square tube stations and numerous bus services. Tickets £11 on the door, if available, or cheaper if you book 6 or more.
