June 2022

We hope that you all had a great time celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee Year.

We are now progressing with a full year of events and hoping that life runs smoothly for everyone.

The building is now open every Sunday from 2pm – 4pm until the end of September and we have several group visits booked throughout the year. Our volunteers are always pleased to welcome you to this historic place and tell you of the history of the Dukes of Newcastle who lived locally. We now have a ‘Children’s Corner’ with books/crafts to interest the younger visitors.

Come and see the statue of Georgiana, she has been professionally cleaned thanks to donations and fundraising from our supporters and friends.  

Our latest fundraising for “Unrestored Windows” is now running and we thank you for donations received so far.

Our next event is our summer concert ‘Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days’ which is to be held on Sat. 16th July. 7pm. Tickets are £8 each with refreshments and a drink. There is a raffle and another draw of our One Hundred Pound Lottery. There is still time to reserve your seat!  You can contact us by email at
