The Duke of Buccleuch will host this unique event, and will welcome guests from 11.30 am when a series of distinguished speakers including the CEO of the Alzheimers Society will talk briefly on memory and its loss. Lunch is followed by a curator-guided tour of the intriguing “Memory” exhibition, where we share contrasting experiences of memory and highlight how essential it is to the human experience. Inspired by Boughton’s fabled collections and with music and family history as key guiding threads, the exhibition ranges from classical Greece, 17th century exploits in the Caribbean, Van Dyck’s paintings on wood, treasures from Versailles, 18th century opera and dance, through Boughton’s WW2 role as a prisoner of war camp and safe haven for some of the nation’s treasures, and a glamorous 1950’s, royalty-attended family wedding.
The Aurora Orchestra of London will perform Mozart’s 40th symphony from memory in the great Hall at 2pm and 3.15pm. A tour of the magnificent 17thC staterooms is followed by tea and an opportunity to linger in the exhibition or to have a leisurely garden walk.
