Antiques Evening at Tabley!
The Friends of Tabley’s new autumn programme of events gets off to a cracking start with a great evening devoted to a subject of increasing interest – antiques. And they have a star speaker as a central attraction.
Well-known as a regular expert on the BBC’s “Bargain Hunt” and “Flog It”, but even better known locally as the Principal Auctioneer and Valuer at Frank Marshall’s in Knutsford, Nick Hall will take centre stage for what promises to be a fascinating evening.
His talk is next week on Thursday 20th October at 7.30pm in the Tabley House’s stunning Gallery, and is intriguingly entitled “Antiques Ancient and More Modern”.
Wine and nibbles will also be served during the evening.
“This is an excellent start to our new programme of events” said Nick Payne, Chairman of the Friends “and should make a good contribution to our funds for restoring the chapel.” When asked about the cost of this project, he said that the latest estimate was around £17,500. “And we’ve already mangaged to build up £15,000 in the bank, so we’re nearly there”, he added. “We’re very successful for a small society – but we do still need more Friends!”
Tickets are £14 (£12 for Friends), and are available from Anna Smyth on 01565-651979.
