This exhibition is the second in a series dedicated to the museums’ extensive and ever-popular collection of old Derby pictures, donated by local art collector
Alfred Goodey between 1936 and 1945. Explore the old pubs of Derby further through our historical “crawl” and discover a long and celebrated connection with beer that endures through the city’s celebrated reputation as the real ale capital of Britain.
Come along and fold, sculpt and create your very own paper wig to wear in the Georgian way! You can complete the full Georgian look by trying on some 18th Century clothes in Pickford’s playroom.
Join Samantha Schofield for an hour of tea, cake and crafting from the Crafternoon Tea Bar amidst the beautiful setting of Pickford’s House. This is a truly unique experience – a chance to step into history as this session will be held in our 18th Century kitchen.
We are delighted to continue this popular traditional Christmas event at Pickford’s House. The house will come to life with the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas.
