Contemporary Heritage – Can you help?

Call out for props…
Artist Catherine Bertola is re-staging a series of scenes from the history of Gawthorpe Hall as part of her commission, Flicker, which opens next year. We’re currently on the hunt for props to help us stage the scenes as authentically as possible. Can you help? All props will be required for a few days only over the first weekend in February 2013. If you can help, please get in touch by email ( or call us 01282 421986 and ask for Dominique or Lucy.

Here are a few ideas of the props we are looking for. Hopefully these images might give an idea of what we need. The images are sourced from the internet and may not be authentic, they are just to give you an idea.
