The story of Goodwood House by Hilly Sloan
This illustrated talk will be presented at 7.30pm at the Mountford Rooms, Emsworth Community Centre, North Street, Emsworth. PO10 7DD.
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, books, porcelain, plus of course sport, fashion and culture.
Tickets available at the door or can be purchased whenever the museum is open, plus Tuesdays and Thursdays 2.00pm - 4.00pm. After 29th October advance tickets will only be available on the Tuesday or Thursday afternoons.
Members of the E.M. & H.T. £3.00 Non members £4.00.
