Exhibition: 'Dinner with a Duke' at the Harley Gallery, Welbeck Abbey

'Dinner with a Duke - Decoding food and drink at Welbeck 1690 - 1910' is an intriguing exhibition showing at the Harley Gallery, Welbeck Abbey until February 2012.

The exhibition "focuses on 400 years of entertaining at Welbeck, looking at the lavish and fashionable tableware, entertaining as social duty, and the specialist departments that included hothouses, bakehouse, poultry house, dairy, fruit and vegetable gardens along with stories of servants eating and drinking too much while the family was away."

There is also an accompanying programme of talks.

More information is available on the Harley Gallery website.
