Events at Himley Hall

Himley Hall is a commanding 18th Century building set amongst 180 acres of 'Capability' Brown landscaped parkland. Once the family home to the Earls of Dudley and host to royalty and high society, today it offers contemporary art and craft exhibitions during spring and summer, as well as prestigious conference facilities and guided tours. The Hall also provides a glamorous setting for civil wedding ceremonies and receptions and other special occasions.

Himley Park is now a premier events venue playing host to a variety of outdoor events from garden plant fairs and classic vehicle shows to the breathtaking Himley Fireworks display. Visitors may participate in golf, pitch and putt, fishing, orienteering, sailing or just simply a peaceful stroll around the park and picnic. The park is now visited by over 200,000 visitors each year.

Our Stour     Saturday 4th April - Sunday 6th September

An exhibition of photographs by Graham Beckley.

An exhibition of 120 colour prints from a collection of over 400 photographs taken over the past 4 years illustrating the Black Country's most important river during all of its seasons.

Graham has captured the River Stour from its source in the Clent Hills to Stourport where it joins the Severn. Each image helps to illustrate the history around the river's course flowing from Medieval times, through the Industrial Revolution and into the 21st century.

This memorable journey from Clent through the southern tip of the Black Country and out into the Worcestershire countryside enables you to view the River Stour's tributaries Illey Brook and Mouseweet Brook, important places of interest like St. Kenelm's Church, Stourton Castle and Kidderminster as well as locations that influenced the world of manufacturing like Cradley Forge and BSR.

The exhibition includes an audio visual presentation of the complete collection of photographic images.

 

The Stourbridge Photographic Society Exhibition

Saturday 4th April - Sunday 6th September

A stunning array of work by members of the Stourbridge Photographic Society ranging from sultry flamenco dancers to the stillness of a misty dawn across a vineyard and the Aurora Borealis.  The subjects of work on display are far reaching and the camera lens will do the talking.
