Winter Art Fair and embroidery workshops
The dining room offers some fantastic Gillows of Lancaster furniture which was fortunately never sold. One is a very large curtain rail covering the entire length of the dining room, which was able to hold the heaviest of curtains, made of damask or leather. The other, more noticeable piece of furniture is the serving table in the semi-circular apse. This serving table was specially created to fit the apse. The front legs are newer additions, very bold and over-the-top in Victorian fashion. If you peer at the back, you can still see the original Georgian, elegant and spindly legs. It’s not every day you get to do embroidery in a setting like that.
