Mother’s Day Tea Party – 100 Years of Hats
Treat your lovely Mum this Mother’s Day. Wear your best hat and join us for afternoon tea in the Stables followed by a whirlwind trip through the enchanting history of the hat in the spectacular setting of the Great Hall.
Discover how such a frippery led to unique changes in the lives and dress of 19th and 20th century women, from laws to protect men’s safety, self-defence classes for women, the declining morals of ladies, and international protests!
Finish your afternoon with a wander around this grand old mansion.
There will be a prize for the most spectacular hat.
