Arts & Crafts return to Speke Hall 

For the first time since Frederick Leyland's tenancy of the Hall in the 1870s, Speke will be a patron of the arts once more. We're looking for a contemporary maker to take up an artist in residence position in June and July 2016 and to produce artwork inspired by the Hall and its rich Arts & Crafts history.
