Red House and Gardens in Gomersal is holding an evening drinks reception on Wednesday July 11 2012 for people interested in forming a Friends of Red House group.
The event at 6.30pm will start with drinks served in the beautiful and historic setting of the main house with costumed period characters on hand in the house and gardens to provide information about the history of Red House and the people who lived in and visited it.
There will be information about the kinds of activities a Friends group could get involved in, as well as information from Kirklees Museums and Galleries, Red House staff and members of the local community.
Cllr Jean Calvert, Cabinet member for Wellbeing and Communities, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to support their local museum by getting more involved and Red House and its gardens will benefit from their help.”
Anyone interested in helping to form a Friends group is welcome to attend the event and should telephone 01274 335100 to reserve a place.
