Knowsley Hall is opening its doors to the public for its annual open week from Monday 3rd – Friday 7th September 2018.
Lord and Lady Derby are inviting the public into their home for a special exhibition of paintings from the Derby Collection that are not usually on public view. The theme this year will be on the Derby Women and Dresses from the Derby Collection where there will be a special series of curated presentations of both historical dresses from the Derby Collection, and also of dresses commissioned by Lady Derby herself from the designer Ulrich Engler. The historic items will include the robes worn by the late Lord and Lady Derby at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey in 1953, as well as the late Lady Derby’s wedding dress from her marriage in 1949.
This is a fantastic opportunity to have a guided tour of the Hall and see one of Merseyside’s hidden treasures.
Knowsley Hall are proud to have received several prestigious awards.
