The Long Weekend: Life in the English Country House between the Wars

An illustrated talk in aid of the Friends of Holnest Church.

Patron of the Friends, Adrian Tinniswood OBE, will uncover the truth about a world half-forgotten, draped in myth and hidden behind stiff upper lips and film-star smiles. Drawing on the eye-witness testimonies of belted earls, unhappy heiresses and bullying butlers, he gives a voice to the people who inhabited the world of the English country house, both above and below stairs.

Adrian is the author of fourteen books on social and architectural history. His most recent being, "The Long Weekend", was a Sunday Times bestseller, a New York Times bestseller and a Daily Telegraph Book of the Year.

Doors open 7.15pm. Tickets cost £5 from Sherborne TIC.

Mediaeval Masons and Tumbling Towers

Blackmore Vale and Yeovil NT Association presents a talk by Pam White (NT Corfe Castle).
A translation from the Latin of the Exchequers Accounts of Edward I has given us quite detailed information about the castle build from 1280 - 94. This, together with the access afforded by the recent conservation work, has fuelled our curiosity about both the castle build and subsequent 'home improvements'.  It's an exciting time to be involved with such an iconic building.
