HRH, The Duke of Gloucester visits the Society

Duke At SAL

 

Our Royal Patron, HRH the Duke of Gloucester, visited the Society on 6th November to discuss the Kelmscott and Morris: Past, Present & Future project. In 2014 the Duke helped us launch our plans for Kelmscott Manor with the fundraising auction and was keen to find out more details about this transformational project.  

Thanks to the great efforts of our Campaign Group, Fellows, Supporters and Funders we have raised over £5 million towards delivering the project.   We are aiming to raise the remaining £800,000 needed for completion by April 2021 through a public appeal and a series of events beginning in early 2019 and culminating in a public exhibition of Kelmscott Manor treasure at the Society in 2020.  HRH the Duke of Gloucester has kindly offered to open this exhibition.
