Bampfylde Lecture 2019 – Death, Diamonds & Demons: The Secret History of Hestercombe House

Fri, 1st Mar at 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

From medieval origins to its Edwardian heyday, the history of Hestercombe House is long and colourful with more than a skeleton or two lurking in its creaking cupboards. In this year’s Bampfylde Lecture, Chief Executive of the Hestercombe Gardens Trust, Philip White, will share with you some of the tales from its lively past. From ghostly apparitions to hidden diamonds, you will hear previously untold stories from different chapters of the mansion’s history.

Make an evening of it and enjoy a two course supper in Hestercombe House before the lecture:

Roasted chicken supreme served with champ mash, spring green cabbage and a thyme jus
