Events at Wythenshawe Hall

 A Victorian Easter  at Wythenshawe Hall

April 2013 The Friends of Wythenshawe Hall delivered a bumper packed afternoon at the Hall on Easter Sunday and welcomed 420 visitors to the Hall. The withdrawing room became a Victorian music hall for the afternoon with "Voice in a Million", Fiona Harrison. The performance proved very emotional for some guests who were maybe remembering loved ones. Punch and Judy took up residence in the library for a fun family packed afternoon. Balloon modelling and magic tricks went down a storm with our younger audience.

 

Comments about the day’s visit:

“Great place to come and visit, must be kept open for future generations to come and see. Good work by all involved."

Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon - we very much enjoyed looking around this historic building and listening to some fantastic singing."

Had fun with the arts and crafts and Punch and Judy. I loved the tour of the building, it is beautiful. All the staff were fantastic and helpful. I will definitely return!"  Mandi Splaine and Alan, Liam and Georgia Burrowes

Love the fact that there's history to be learnt. Its good sharing stories of childhood about activities around the park as kids. Victorian times rock!"

Amazing to see the condition of the Hall and the fantastic work of the volunteers in bringing it back to life. Cant wait to visit again!"

Resident Soprano

 

Scarlett Quigley made a special appearance much to the appreciation of the audience. Dressed in a red Tudor gown, designed and tailored by the head seamstress of FoWH, Scarlett looked every inch a queen for a day! Young children were enthralled with her performance, in fact the mixed audience clearly enjoyed this delight as can be seen in the feedback given on the day.

 

Victorian Crafts

Victorian Crafts were held in the drawing room. Children made Easter boxes decorated with Victorian style images. As a special treat the Easter Bunny made an appearance to give out Easter eggs for their boxes. At the front of the Hall, families enjoyed the free carriage rides though the park, assisted by the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall in Victorian Costume.
