Ilkley Manor House will be opening inside to visitors again from Saturday 3 July.
‘It is wonderful to be able to open the house again’ said Sarah Thomas, Chair of the Manor House Trust. ‘It was a difficult decision not to open as soon as we were permitted to by Government but as a volunteer led organisation, we have to weigh up the safety and support to our volunteers with our desire to offer the public a rewarding visitor experience.’
The weekend before we open the Manor House, we have a Makers’ Fair happening the courtyard on the weekend of 26 and 27 June with stalls selling a range of contemporary art and crafts. The Fair will be open from 10.30am – 5pm on both days.
In the Manor House from 3 July, we will have a small exhibition ‘Super at 60’ looking back over the last 10 years of the Manor House’s development as well as revisiting the exhibition ‘Fantastic at 50’ from 2011.
