Come and experience ‘Image Control’, our 2019 exhibition.
Early evenings on Good Friday, Easter Weekend and Easter Monday, 6pm – 8pm.
In the ‘Age of Instagram’ we are surrounded by carefully created images of ideal lifestyles and standards. However this is not new; come and explore how the Georgians manipulated their own portraits 250 years ago! Question the truth behind the image and dissect portraits from the past.
Hands-on activities include creating your own characters and dressing up like a Georgian in our Portrait Studio as well as learning more about our first resident, Henry Sandford.
The Exhibition gallery will be open along with the ground floor of the main museum. There will be a photography crafting activity in the Servants’ Hall (using pin-hole cameras) – and our shop will also be open.
Tickets are just £5 and include access to the gallery, ground floor and some of the servants’ areas in the basement. If you want to see the whole house and spend more time looking around, then do return the following day, show your ‘Lates’ ticket and receive 25% off normal admission.
