The Nativity in Art
Lecture | Headlam Hall
Monday 14 November 2011 - 10:30 until 17:00
In the 16th century the Headlam Estate came into possession of the Birkbeck family, originally of Hornby in Cumberland.
Together with his wife Anne, the second son Henry was responsible for the construction of Headlam Hall at the turn of the 17th century. As a gift to his wife, Henry had the elaborate oak fireplace installed in the main hall with the Birkbeck coat of arms displayed in the centre of the mantle, which has pride of place to this day.
Sandra Pollard, NADFAS lecturer and associate lecturer at the Open University will present her lecture on 'The Nativity in Art'.
