Grossmann & Brough Houses Open Day

To celebrate the first open day of 2024, Grossmann and Brough Houses invite you to view special displays, take a house tour and enjoy refreshments in the garden.

Gain a glimpse into life in a magnificent Victorian 1870s townhouse, with Grossmann House tours on the hour. Explore the house, the separate wet and dry laundry and view unique 19th century Victorian costumes on show in the Textile Display room upstairs. Refreshments available, including Devonshire teas, homemade slices, gourmet sandwiches, tea, coffee and juice.

View special displays both upstairs and downstairs at neighbouring Brough House, showcasing one of its former lives as the Hostel for Maitland Girls High School. The fascinating Fibre Makers’ Space upstairs will also be open for visits to view historic looms and look at weaving in action. Bespoke textile items will be for sale, and visitors will get the chance to talk to artisans.

Purchase jams and pickles, greeting cards and Mrs Beckett’s locally famous homemade preserves.
