This year's Summer Special Interest Day ‘Two Wrekin Gems’, organised by TAS Wrekin, takes a different format and gives our members an opportunity to appreciate two of our area's treasures on Thursday 19 July 2018. Pre lunch, Arts Society-accredited lecturer Tobias Capwell will talk in Tong church about knightly church monuments of the Middle Ages. Morning coffee and lunch will be in Tong Parish Hall.
The afternoon will be spent at Weston Park where Gareth Williams, Curator and Head of Learning, will talk on Chippendale’s Workshop; 2018 is the Tercentenary of his birth. Guided tours of the House will be followed by an afternoon cream tea. Members will also have the opportunity to visit the Granary Gallery to see the Daimler Art Collection featuring work by German photographer Dieter Blum as well as exploring the formal garden and grounds. The park is open until 6 pm.
