Double-bill for Tabley Friends!

02 Jun 2010

Visits to Blackburn's Museum & Art Gallery and Cathedral on 16 June

After their very successful “triple-bill trip” to Tissington last month, when the Friends of Tabley went to Tissington’s Well-Dressing, its Hall and its gardens, they’re now planning another trip, this time with two destinations of special interest.

On Wednesday 16 June, a coach trip to Blackburn will include visits to the city’s Museum & Art Gallery and to the Cathedral. The Tabley Friends will have the benefit of guided tours at both of them.

The Museum and Art Gallery is nationally acclaimed for its collection of fine art, Japanese prints, coins and manuscripts. The Anglican Cathedral has one of the finest collections of modern religious art in the country.

“It should be a really good outing” said Nick Payne, Chairman of the Friends. “As usual all proceeds will go towards our latest re-furbishment project in the House, which is the restoration of the chapel interior”.

The coach will depart from Tabley House car park at 9.30am and return at about 5.30pm.

Tickets cost £29 (£26 for Friends) - and include lunch.
