At Home with Admiral Carpenter
FREE with admission to the Hall!
It is May 1896 and the recently retired Admiral Walter Cecil Carpenter of Kiplin Hall is preparing for the summer season.
You have been invited to join him in a quite reminiscence of his life in the navy and his association with Kiplin Hall. Unfortunately his daughter Sarah has other ideas. He has been double booked to open the bowling against Duncombe Park “Top Hat” eleven and play the part of Oberon the fairy king in Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, and that’s not all. A series of events is conspiring to turn his retirement house party into the biggest fiasco since the charge of the Light Brigade. Will the naval commander who took on the perils of the Baltic and the Crimea face up to his greatest challenge?
Brian Forbes is Admiral Carpenter for the afternoon of Sunday 15 May. Come and meet him and listen to his stories at Kiplin Hall between 2 and 5pm
