EMSWORTH

TALK: Goodwood House: the story of the House and Family” by Hilly Sloan. An illustrated talk at 7.30pm in the Mountford Rooms, North Street Community Centre, Emsworth PO10 7DD (access through the car park). It was the lure of chasing a pesky fox that brought the 1st Duke of Richmond to Goodwood at the end of the 17th century. Initially just a hunting lodge, it eventually became the family’s main home after their London residence burnt down in 1791. This talk brings that period of history to life, placing the Dukes of Richmond firmly in the centre. The individual passions of each of the Dukes has shaped the Goodwood we see today – beautiful art, furniture, porcelain, plus of course sport, fashion and culture. Members of Emsworth Maritime and Historical Trust - £3; Non Members - £4. Tickets are available at the door or can be purchased in advance from the museum on Tuesday and Thursday 2pm – 4pm. The maximum number that can be admitted is 90. For more details visit www.emsworthmuseum.org.uk, email info@emsworthmuseum.org.uk or telephone 01243 378091.
