Dr Gillian White gave us an excellent talk in January 2020 on the topic of THE ELIZABETHAN COUNTRY HOUSE. This time she is going to talk more specifically about BESS OF HARDWICK AND HARDWICK HALL.
Bess of Hardwick is one of the most fascinating women of the sixteenth Century and her most famous building, Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire, survives as a fine example of Elizabethan creativity, magnificence, and pride. This talk outlines Bess’s remarkable life and then explores the architecture and, contents of Hardwick Hall, surely her lasting monument.
Dr Gill White formerly worked for the National Trust as a curator/collections manager at Hardwick Hall. She now works as a freelance lecturer and teaches at Oxford and Leicester.
