Join Ormesby Hall’s Collections and House team over this special weekend to find out what goes into looking after a Georgian mansion and caring for over 7500 objects.
You will be able to see the important work the staff and volunteers do, talk with them about specific tasks and you might even pick up a few tips.
There is a range of activities planned including practical demonstrations on cleaning books, polishing brass fittings and black leading the fireplaces, as well as talks on textiles and how they put the house to bed in winter.
There will also be a conservation themed tour running throughout the weekend, and you can join in helping us monitor for pesky insect pests!
Normal admission applies to visit and access this event.
