Hidden Treasures: A meander through the curious collections of Mary Hope Greg
Friday, 23 August 2013 from 14:00 to 16:00 (BST)
Join PhD researcher, Liz Mitchell, for a meander through the curious collections of Mary Hope Greg - Edwardian collector, maker and rescuer of the intimate and personal things of the past.
Tucked away in the attic of Platt Hall, a country house in the middle of the city, Mrs Greg’s collections offer an evocative glimpse of everyday lives gone by. Delve into cupboards and boxes, in a lucky dip encounter in the hidden stores of Platt Hall’s internationally renowned Gallery of Costume.
