You can see the treasures of Hardwick Hall without the trouble of driving there on November 19th at Oldcotes Village Hall.
Historian Maureen Taylor will give a virtual tour for those who are unable to get to Hardwick, or for those who are thinking of going and want to be well prepared for what to look for.
The power-point presentation visits the Hall room by room in the same sequence that an actual visitor would see them in. Descriptions of each room and the history of the artefacts are given in great detail.
The lives of Bess of Hardwick, her husbands and her granddaughter Arabella are interwoven into the presentation. Without them, the rich tapestry of the Hall could not be told.
The talk starts at 19.30 and tickets are £2 for members and £3 for visitors, no booking is required and free tea/coffe and biscuits are given.
