Open Day: Hellens – A History in Stitches

Date and Time
Thu, 31st Mar, 2022 at 10:00 - 16:30

A day showcasing the work of the Arts Society. Tours of the House will be available at 11am, 1pm & 3pm (to book a place on a tour, please visit our events page).

In 2017 a team of dedicated Arts Society volunteers began a new, exciting project at Hellens. This crewelwork embroidery illustrates the story of Hellens Manor from before the Norman conquest to the present day and spans almost 10 metres.
Join us on 31st March any time between 10.30am-3pm to see the historic research, evolution of the design and how the project is progressing. This is part of a rich history of Heritage Volunteers’ conservation work and original textiles created at Hellens over the past 21 years.

Hellens Tearoom will be open for refreshments
