Halloween for grown-ups
Whilst the kids are searching for Frank N Duck, should you find a quiet moment, we continue to celebrate Fanny Boscawen and the Bluestocking Society. This Halloween we look slightly further to the next generation and explore parts of the fascinating story of Mary Shelley, 'the girl who wrote Frankenstein'. As you wander the house, discover her connection was to the bluestockings and the story behind the creation of her most famous novel. If you find her as fascinating as we do, you can pick up a new biography, In Search of Mary Shelley by Fiona Sampson, in our shop.
