as promised, here are some of the photos of Period Room conference delegates engrossed in the papers and discussion at the Bowes Museum.
We also had the privilege of seeing the operation of the famous Silver Swan at Bowes Museum – a rare occurrence at 7pm…in the dark of the picture gallery…it was an amazing sight (and sound)….Thank you to Jane and her team at Bowes for allowing this special display!
And, as part of the conference, we had an expert private tour of the new English Interiors Galleries at Bowes Museum, led by curators Jane Whittaker and Howard Coutts.
And here we ALL are (except me…I’m taking the photo!)…a ‘team’ shot of (just about) all of the conference delegates and speakers….Thanks all for making the conference such a success!
