Afternoon tea at Winterbourne - 2 April 2011

On Saturday 2nd April 101 alumni and their guests made the most of the sunshine and enjoyed a private tour of the newly-refurbished Winterbourne House and Garden.  

Curator Lee Hale welcomed everyone and gave an insight in to the history of Winterbourne before guiding alumni through Winterbourne’s beautiful seven acre gardens.

Alumni were then invited to have afternoon tea and cakes before exploring the house to see how the decor would have appeared when the house was occupied 100 years ago and some of its fine furniture and antiques.  Alumni also used the interactive exhibits which told stories of the house and its occupants through the people who lived and worked there over the years.

Visit Winterbourne's website to read a history of the house and view details of all forthcoming events: www.winterbourne.org.uk

Our next event Court on Canvas: Tennis in Art is on Friday 27th May at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts. Alumni and their guests are invited to a private viewing of the exhibition on the day it opens to the public. For further details visit our events calendar.

If you do not receive an email invitation to our events it may be that we do not have up-to-date information for you.  You can update your details at any time at your.bham or by calling 0121 414 2773
