Friends of Milton Mausoleum

by | 6 December 2022 | Heritage, Retford

The Milton Mausoleum Committee would like to thank all friends, supporters and visitors over this last year. Again, it has been a busy year with all the usual events plus an additional one: a Commemorative Service for the life of Georgiana, the 4th Duchess of Newcastle.

This year was the 200-year anniversary of her death. The service was a mixture of music, hymns, a poem, quotations from the diary of the 4th Duke and an insight into the life of the Duchess. A special part of the service was a reading of the 23rd Psalm via internet from America by the Lady Patricia Pelham-Clinton-Hope, daughter of the 9th Duke and great, great, great granddaughter of Georgiana. A very unique event.

The Mausoleum will be finishing the year with the very popular Carols by Candlelight on Saturday 3rd December from 4.00pm to 5.00pm. This event is now fully booked with a waiting list.

The first event of 2023 will be the Sunday lunch in April (more details to follow), which precedes the regular Sunday openings of the Mausoleum from 2.00pm to 4.00pm beginning on Sunday 7th May.

The Committee is again planning a year full of a variety of events and looks forward to seeing you all again. They wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a healthy New Year.
