Dining by Design: Annual Winter Lecture

Lecture | Headlam Hall

Monday 4 November 2013 - 10:30 until 14:30

The Annual Winter lecture, Dining by Design 1680-1860, will be given by Peter Brown, Director of York Civic Trust and former Director of Fairfax House, in York. Drawing upon manuals of instructions, Royal Household accounts and records in country house collections, Peter will explore the evolving relationship between developments in cuisine, presentation of food on the table and rules of behaviour that governed 'polite society'.

This event has been organised by a local supporter group to raise money for the Art Fund.
