    TALK Goodwood House

    19.30-20.30

    Venue: Emsworth Museum, 10B North Street, Emsworth, PO10 7DD

    It was the lure of chasing a pesky fox that brought the 1st Duke of Richmond to Goodwood at the end of the 17th Century! Initially just a hunting lodge, it eventually became the family’s main home after their London residence burnt down in 1791.

    This talk brings that period of history to life, placing the Dukes of Richmond firmly in the centre.

    The individual passions of each of the dukes has shaped the Goodwood we see today – beautiful art, furniture, books, porcelain …. plus of course sport, fashion and culture,
