As part of Renishaw Hall & Garden’s 2014 season, which opens on March 29th, Christine Beevers, Renishaw Hall’s archivist, is asking people with personal and family links to the hall and estate to come forward and get in touch.
Named ‘Renishaw Recollections’, Christine’s project hopes to use the memories told to help shape the history of Renishaw Hall, and give more insight in to the way the estate functioned, through the experiences of the people working for the family.
Visitors can tell their Renishaw family stories to Christine by contacting her via firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the Estate Office during opening hours from March 29th to September 28th, 2014.
Renishaw Hall & Gardens will be also hosting a World War I talk, given by Christine, as she explores the archive to find the Sitwell family’s many links to First World War on the centenary of the year of its outbreak.
Important artefacts – not normally on view to the public – will be brought out of the house archives and displayed and explained during the talk.
Dates TBC, during the summer months 2014
