Upton Hall in Nottinghamshire

Proms in the Park on Saturday July 13th. The beautiful 12 acre grounds will be open from 4.30pm for customers to bring their own chairs and enjoy music from the Newark and Sherwood Concert Band. There will be two musical sessions commencing at 6.00pm with favourites Land of Hope and Glory, Sailors Hornpipe, Rule Britannia etc included in the repertoire. Food will be available on site as will a licensed bar and a cocktail bar.  
These events represent the museum’s determination to attract and embrace a wider audience to Upton Hall with a recent event bringing many people in period costume to celebrate the 200th Birthday of Queen Victoria at our Victorian Times event.
Museum Curator and charity Chairman, Viscount Alan Midleton told us: “These are just a few of several ambitious undertakings as we embark on our plan to attract many more visitors to enjoy both the hall and our incredible collection of timekeeping equipment. We are also improving the layout of some of our halls in order to enhance the experience of individual and group visitors. In this day and age, museums and other attractions need to be more self-sustainable and we are determined to achieve that situation.”
