David Standing is an expert on White and the garden during White’s lifetime, join him on the 27th for an in-depth course into the intricacies of the garden. 

8. Go Shopping!

We’ve got lots of great goodies in our shop, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping or maybe perhaps just some goodies for you!

9. Birds, Botany and Books 

We are really lucky to have Professor Brycchan Carey visit us on the 29th November! He will explore White’s literary style and literary connections show how White, far from being a secluded country parson, was at the centre of the eighteenth-century literary world.

10. Enjoy the museum at dusk!
