We enjoyed taking part in #AskACurator Day – 14 September 2016
Ask A Curator Day, a live Q&A session on Twitter between museum experts and members of the public from around the world. Our Assistant Archivist was online to answer questions, @KnebworthHouse and using the #askacurator hashtag.
Questions included –
What’s your favourite item in the archive – Answer: it’s Lady Lytton’s WWI Hospital Book from 1918 – a unique treasure!
You have ‘Christmas Carol’ there this Dec – what is the connection with Dickens? – Answer:Dickens was a friend of Edward Bulwer Lytton and stayed at Knebworth many times staging theatricals in the Banqueting Hall.
