Farfield Mill

Whitworth Gallery visit to the Lucienne Day exhibition Tuesday May 23rd.

After the success of the talk in the mill recently by Paula Day, about her mother textile designer Lucienne Day, a special visit has been arranged to the award-winning Whitworth Gallery in Manchester on Tuesday May 23rd.

We will be travelling by mini bus, which will pick us up at 9.30am in Joss Lane car park and should arrive at The Whitworth at about 11.30am.

Jennifer Harris will show us around the Lucienne Day exhibition and it has also been arranged for some Lucienne Day fabrics to be brought out of the store and be on show in the Study Centre for us to see. Jennifer curated the exhibition and has recently received an Award for Lifetime Contribution to Lucienne Day Studies from the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation so we are thrilled when she agreed to come in and meet us.

We will have lunch at 1pm in the new 'Cafe in the Trees’ restaurant and then have a guided tour at 2pm of the rest of this recently extended gallery.

We will leave about 3.30pm for arrival back in Sedbergh at approx. 5.30pm.

The cost of the trip is £16. If you would like to come on this trip please call the Mill for more details.

Lunch will be booked as the restaurant gets rather busy, but if you would prefer to bring sandwiches, please let us know.
