Mechanical Music in Chudleigh
Reception | Aeolian Court
Thursday 8 November 2012 - 18:30 until 21:00
Over the years Robert and Jackie Hough have collected and restored an extraordinary number of mechanical musical instruments, dating from the beginning of the 19th century to the present day.
After a glass of wine and some canapés in their dining room we will move to the purpose-built Music Room. This is decorated with five panels of Devon scenes, painted by John Shapland in 1902, which were in Exeter's Theatre Royal before it was demolished in 1962. Robert will talk to us about some of the instruments and play some of them too.
