Museum Insight: Service and Disgrace: Deputy Governors of the Isle of Wight

Tuesday 10th March, 2020, 2-4pm

The recent Deputy Governors of the Isle of Wight have been important to the museum in facilitating its foundation, caring for the collection (or not) and residing at the castle. Hallam Tennyson broke the mould in being non-resident and the last deputy governor. This Insight with Paul Bingham will include an opportunity to view the secret tunnel that Thomas Cochrane had dug to keep his food warm, and the memorial to his deserted wife (the Island’s ‘Lady Diana’), buried in the chapel.

Museum Insights are a programme of special talks, designed to give local people an opportunity to find out more about the museum and its collection.

Tickets are £8 and include tea, coffee and biscuits.

Booking is essential. Call us on 523112, email or book online (small fee applies).

All money raised helps support the work of the Museum.
