George Frederic Watts

G.F. Watts, Victorian Artist, and the Kiplin Connection

Amongst the friends and supporters of G.F. Watts were the beautiful Ladies Pembroke, Brownlow and Lothian, sisters of Walter Cecil Talbot, owner of Kiplin Hall from 1868 - 1904. The three sisters were painted by Watts on several occasions and fine portraits of Constance, Marchioness of Lothian of Blickling Hall; Gertrude, Countess of Pembroke of Wilton House; and Adelaide, Countess Brownlow of Belton House and Ashridge Park, hang in the Drawing Room at Kiplin Hall, drawing much admiration from visitors.

 Also on display at Kiplin is a portrait by Watts of Harry Cust, Earl Brownlow’s cousin, and Victorian prints of Love and Life and Love and Death and a sketch of Love Triumphant, which was sent by Watts to Gertrude, Lady Pembroke, following the death of her husband in 1895, is held within the collection.

 In the year of the 200th anniversary of this famous Victorian artist, Brian Forbes, as George Frederic Watts, brings to life the stories behind these portraits and prints that hang at Kiplin Hall.

Northanger Abbey

Northanger Abbey at Kiplin Hall

Actors and audience meet at a writing class to discuss the merits of Northanger Abbey, and so begins the coming-of-age tale of the naive Catherine Morland.  A fan of the Gothic novel, Catherine struggles to differentiate between fantasy and reality, and makes a few social faux pas as a result - to the amusement and offence of others!  Faux friendships and real romance help to define this Jane Austen classic.  Social commentary, humour and parody ensure that Heartbreak Productions' Northanger Abbey will be the perfect summer evening's entertainment.

Adults £14, Concession/Student £12, Under 16 £8.

Gates open for picnics 6.00pm, performance starts 7.00pm

To book, please telephone 01748 818178 or e-mail info@kiplinhall.co.uk
