Heydon Hall was built for Henry Dynne, Auditor to the Queen’s Exchequer. The Hall stands in a fine park, entered through the picturesque Heydon village. Relatively few Elizabethan houses survive in Norfolk, and Heydon is certainly one of the best. By very kind permission of Rhona Bulwer Long and David Horton Fawkes, there will be an exclusive tour of the Hall and gardens in the afternoon.

The day will start at Heydon Parish Room with coffee & homemade biscuits, followed by two talks there. Architectural Historian, Dr Jill Husselby, will speak on Elizabethan Architecture: the spread of new ideas. Jill will explore some of the extraordinary buildings created in the later 16th century, including those commissioned by William Cecil, Elizabeth I’s Chief Advisor for much of her reign. Next, Art Historian, Charlotte Crawley will give her lecture, Later Tudor Portraits: Monarchs & Courtiers, as she examines the flowering of spectacular portraiture in the Elizabethan era.

We shall then transfer to the excellent Earle Arms pub by The Green for a two-course hot lunch. After that we drive through the Park to Heydon Hall, and walk up the driveway to the house for our tours.

Tickets are £65 per person and include coffee, two lectures, a two course lunch and guided tours of Heydon Hall exterior and interior.
