The house opens differently in January for lots of reasons! We’re not as busy as usual so we take the opportunity to open in other ways.
We run special Behind Closed Doors Tours which go into not usually seen parts of the house. You get to go down to the cellar and up to the water tower and we have some extra time in the main part of the house to get some of the deep clean done in awkward areas.
We also use January opening to get any building or decorating work done – this year we had the painters in to decorate the Morning Room Corridor.
We use special water based paint and the colour is mixed specially for us by our specialist decorators. The colour comes from investigations into original paint colours
This year, following the success of our Winter Tree and exhibition round the house we also have a special Kaffe Fassett exhibition. It’s in the house in our exhibition rooms, open from 12 to 2.30pm (last entry at 2pm).
Come along and see what we are up to!
