Summer 2024 Lunch

Tuesday 11th June 2024

We have booked a Summer Lunch at Middlethorpe Hall in June. This seems a much more attractive time of year to arrange a lunch. The gardens will be at their best and we shall have the Oak dining room exclusively for us. The meal will be reasonably  priced, and it will be an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones.

AUCKLAND CASTLE, THE SPANISH GALLERY and THE FAITH MUSEUM

Bishop Auckland has been transformed owing to the magnificent muti-million pound investment by the philanthropist Jonathan Ruffer, who was born in Stokesley

 

THE CASTLE

This is one of the best preserved palaces with splendid Gothic rooms and a private chapel.

The fine collection of Zuberon paintings saved by Jonathan Ruffer from being sold at auction are on display in the Castle.

THE SPANISH GALLERY

This is the only UK gallery devoted to the art, history and culture of Spain. It was officially opened by the Queen of Spain and Prince of Wales in 2022. Works by El Greco and Velasquez are among those on display.

THE FAITH MUSEUM

Opened in 2023, this unique museum looks at how faiths impacted on Britain over 6,000 years.
