Alan Titchmarsh launches Gilbert Who?

The date all staff at Gilbert White’s House have highlighted in their dairies is now nearly upon us – Sat 9th April when everyone’s favourite TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh makes a welcome return visit to The Wakes to officially launch our new permanent Gilbert Who? Exhibition!

All are welcome to join us, not only for a glimpse of our loyal Patron, but to help us celebrate the wonderful legacy of ‘the man who started us all birdwatching’.

Bells Library has new interactive displays including the chance to see if you identify birds by their song, and the Great Parlour -stripped of its beautiful Georgian furniture in a night time burglary three years ago- now has a new lease of life and boasts a purpose-built bookcase to house an incredible and extensive collection of ‘Natural History of Selborne’ which has kindly been donated to the museum by local historian and actor Ronnie Davidson-Houston.
