Turn Over an Old Leaf…

…by coming to our event next week in Nostell’s historic library!

Join us on Thursday 20th September at 12.30pm for Turn Over an Old Leaf.

It’s one for the bookworms – enjoy a talk about Nostell’s historic library, followed by a special opportunity to take a closer look at some of our favourite books. If you’ve ever wanted to look inside the books on Nostell’s shelves then now is your chance! 

A variety of fishes and a hand drawn picture of an eel (bottom right of the illustrations). We don’t know who drew it but we can always guess! Who knows what books you’ll see at Turn Over an Old Leaf, so come along and find out!

The cost is £5 plus normal admission, which ensures re-entry for you to explore the house after the event. Booking is essential. Please be prepared to leave large bags in the cloakroom, and if you wish to take notes please use pencils.

We look forward to seeing you there, for some literary fun!
