All welcome to our annual Open House at Brough and Grossmann Houses.
Take the chance to visit the magnificent Victorian townhouse, Grossmann House, for a gold coin donation only. Also on view will be a display featuring items from the Grossmann House sewing machine, textile and lace collections. Machines range from the tiny Moldacot Pocket Model to the superbly crafted cabinet of Maria Windeyer’s parlour model. Domestic textiles are from the Victorian and early 20th century periods and there are beautiful examples of hand crafted and machine made lace. Refreshments will be available for sale, as will be bric a brac, and the jams and pickles from Mrs Beckett’s Kitchen.
