Event description


Derek Johns is one of Britain’s most distinguished picture experts, Head of the Old Master Paintings at Sotheby’s before setting up his gallery in St James’s. He is also a gardener, and atConock Manor, a house handsomely re-faced in the 1740s, has created a series of settings, from a water scene inspired byGiverny to a formal garden modelled on a favourite Dutch canvas. You will also step into conservatories which have exquisite collections of favourite flowers. Last – but on this Sunday certainly not least – Derek is a remarkable cook, winner of MasterChef in 1993. He and his wife Daphne have chosen to support the Museum’s appeal by giving Sunday lunch in their drawing room.

After lunch – and having immersed ourselves in the garden – we will travel the very short distance to his neighbours David and Venetia Morrison for tea. The Morrisons have commissioned a new classical house and begun a new garden.
