Podcasts focusing on Sewerby Hall history

Sewerby Hall and Gardens has launched new short weekly podcasts which will be aired every Wednesday.

Sunday, 26th April 2020, 10:15 am
The first podcast was called ‘Into the Picture’ looking at a 1912 garden party.

Produced by education officer Robert Chester, the podcasts are around two minutes long, and will focus on the history of the venue, as portrayed by a different picture each week.

The first podcast was called ‘Into the Picture’ and is about the Garden Party of 1912 held at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, which was in fact a political rally by the then owners the Lloyd Greames, to further the political aspirations of Philip Lloyd Greame.

This week’s is about the history of the bandstand and Miss Monica Wilkin’s orchestra, while the third, on Wednesday May 6, will be about Yarburgh Greame’s garden in 1850 – it was a new garden then which had not been long laid out.

Robert Chester explained: “Although we are of course unable to open the house and the main facilities to the public at the moment, and we can’t host any events, I thought it would be a good idea to give people something interesting and informative to watch on a weekly basis.

“The podcasts will also help people keep in touch with Sewerby Hall and Gardens until we are able to reopen.”

The podcasts will be available via the Sewerby Hall and Gardens You Tube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDK_QAIbpmYYIwJUG8dU-Zw

Sewerby Hall and Gardens also features on the new Active East Riding website: www.ActiveEastRiding.co.uk
