An Evening at Wallington Hall
Tuesday 11 December 2018
Organiser: Hugh Dixon
Our evening took the usual format of talk and tour, and a buffet followed by an art and architecture quiz.
The Christmas party was at Wallington Hall, through the kindness of Lloyd Langley, House and Collections Manager, and the National Trust team. We were able to experience the house in the dark of a winter evening, dressed for Christmas.
Lloyd, Hugh Dixon (committee member and former NT Curator), and Robin Dower (whose grandfather, Sir Charles Trevelyan, donated Wallington to the Trust fifty years ago), led tours and showed items from the house's drawing collection, and talked about these and related research currently being undertaken. After supper Dr Tom Yellowley set a quiz.
