Rocks, Pots and Lily Pads at the Treasure House in Beverley

A new exhibition “Rocks, Pots and Lily Pads: The Burnby Hall Golden Jubilee Restoration Project” opens at the Treasure House in Beverley on Saturday, 6 April.

The exhibition tells the story of how, with the help of a £634,800 Heritage Lottery grant, funded with thanks by National Lottery Players, Burnby Hall Gardens and Museum in Pocklington has been restored to its former Edwardian glory.

Work on the Gardens was started in the early 1900s by Percy and Katharine Stewart.  Major Percy Stewart had been born in Cambridgeshire but had come to East Yorkshire to take up a teaching post at Pocklington School.  In 1901, Percy and his wife Katharine set up home at Burnby Hall and designed an impressive and fashionable pleasure garden with lakes, aviaries and a rock garden.

In 1964, in his will, Percy gifted the grounds of Burnby Hall to the people of Pocklington in trust.  Since then, the Gardens have been enjoyed by generations of families – feeding the fish is always a favourite for children.

However, over time the edges of the Upper Lake had deteriorated, the Rock Garden over grown with much of the original planting design lost and the Edwardian Summer House, Aviary and Potting Shed needed some love and attention. Burnby Hall Gardens were delighted to receive a Heritage Lottery grant to enable them to carry out the important restoration needed, and in 2016 embarked on an ambitious scheme of work to restore the Gardens to their former Edwardian glory.

Over the three years, a team of volunteers and specialist staff have replanted over 15,000 alpines, dug in 10,000 bulbs in the Rock Garden, enriched the waterlily beds and built a bespoke Learning Zone for schools and community groups on site.

Visitors can find out all about their hard work and see some amazing historic images of the Gardens when the exhibition opens in Beverley on Saturday, 6 April. 

The exhibition runs until 15 June and admission is free.  The Treasure House is a five minute walk from Beverley town centre. The opening hours for the Treasure House are :

Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat 9:30am – 5pm
Tue, Thurs 9:30am – 8pm

For full details of all exhibitions at the Treasure House, and all the facilities including the café, visit :  eastridingmuseums.co.uk

Council and Carbon Trust to host workshop

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and The Carbon Trust will host a free workshop at Brough Business Centre, on Thursday, 13 June, for small-and-medium-sized-enterprises (SMEs) to provide training on reducing energy bills and how to focus on major areas of energy consumption.

Paul Bell, head of economic development at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Working with The Carbon Trust, the council is pleased to be hosting this free workshop for SMEs.

“Providing practical advice and support on the subject of energy is beneficial to both the environment, in terms of reducing carbon emissions, and in ensuring SMEs maximise their business potential by not having to overpay on their energy bills.”

Festival of Words returns for 2019 with Spring Dayfest author events at the Treasure House in Beverley

Following the huge success of the first ‘Festival of Words’ (which replaced Beverley Literature Festival and Bridlington Poetry Festival) last October, the East Riding Libraries team have planned a programme of author events taking place throughout 2019, featuring another flagship festival weekend running from 18-20 October.

The first event of the year, a ‘Spring Dayfest’, will be a full day mini-festival featuring a hand-picked selection of Northern Writers taking place in the Treasure House, Beverley on Saturday, 11 May.  The authors have been promoted by ‘New Writing North’ who work to promote and support writers in the North of England.

The event will showcase an eclectic mix of writing, ranging from crime, poetry and romance, to something altogether more dark and sinister. The authors featured will be:

Robert Scragg (What Falls Between the Cracks – Crime Fiction) 10-11am
Andrew Hurley (Devil’s Day – Horror) 12-1pm
Anna Woodford (Poetry Workshop) 2-3pm
Clare Shaw (Poetry Reading and Discussion) 3-4pm
Catherine Isaac (Feel Good Fiction) – 4.30-5.30pm
Robert Scragg’s debut crime fiction book ‘What falls between the cracks’ has been described as Howard Linskey as “a strong contender for crime fiction debut of the year….a sparkling new talent.”

‘Devil’s Day’ by Andrew Michael Hurley was eagerly anticipated, following on from his debut gothic fiction novel, The Loney, which won the 2015 Costa debut novel award, and was described by Stephen King as an ‘amazing piece of fiction’.

Award winning poets Anna Woodford and Clare Shaw will also be hosting events during the day.

Catherine Isaac’s ‘You, Me, Everything’ was a Richard and Judy book club pick in 2018 and is now being developed into a film. This is a unique opportunity to meet the author before the silver screen catapults the story into everyone’s living room.

Senior librarian Pamela Taylor- Bramwell said : "We are so excited to welcome these brilliant Northern writers to our Spring festival. We've curated a diverse programme, keeping pricing as affordable as possible, to introduce our readers to new writing."

The Spring Dayfest promises to be an exciting and thoroughly interesting day, with full day tickets at £10 or individual tickets at £3 per event, and they are available now from www.festivalofwords.co.uk or by phoning the ticket line (Mon-Fri 9-4pm) on 01482 392699.
