History meets haute couture at the Knowsley Hall 2019 public opening

One of the region’s grandest stately homes is preparing to open its doors to the public for its annual open week from Saturday 14th to Friday 20th September 2019.

This is a rare opportunity to have a guided tour of the Hall by the Curators of the Derby Collection and to see inside one of Merseyside’s hidden treasures.

As well as touring the exquisite rooms, this year’s special exhibition, ‘A Passion for the Turf’, will include equestrian paintings from the family’s private collection not usually on view to the public.

This will be accompanied by ‘Dresses for Ladies Day’, a unique set of The Countess of Derby’s haute couture racing outfits and hats worn to the Grand National, The Derby and Royal Ascot, displayed throughout the Hall.

They are offering two types of tours, please visit the Knowsley Hall website for more details
