Spring member events
I am pleased to announce that, working in co operation with NCC and the team at Newstead Abbey, NAP can now welcome you to two special viewings of the Abbey’s collection.
A Private view of the costume collection
Starting at 2pm Wednesday 6th May 2015
Judith, the curator will give NAP a privileged insight into the collection, its preservation and its history.
Hopefully we will be able to see a few of the unique pieces held in the collection. Due to physical constraints we will have to organise ourselves into groups of 10 to see the costumes.
Please respond by email to me at:
I will make the necessary arrangements. Please express a preference, if you have one, between a 2 or 3 o’clock start.
