A Special Anniversary

We are pleased to begin this year with a full list of events planned for you to enjoy.

2022 is a special anniversary year for Georgiana, 4th Duchess of Newcastle and she will be the focus of some of our events.

We begin with The Friends Sunday Lunch at the West Retford Hotel, celebrated last year with our highest number of attendees ever.  This year the date is 10th April. Come along with friends, enjoy lunch together from our new list of menu choices; and find out more about our historic building.

Each year, from May to September, we open the Mausoleum on Sunday afternoons from 2pm – 4pm when our volunteers will give you a tour of the building and share the story of the 4th Duke & Duchess of Newcastle.  Tours can be organised for parties or groups by arrangement.
