Costuming THE CROWN Evening Lecture: “Glorious Goodwood: England’s Greatest Sporting Estate and the Dukes of Richmond”
December 4, 6:00 pm, Copeland Lecture Hall
Famous throughout the world as England’s greatest sporting estate, Goodwood has been the home of the Dukes of Richmond for over three hundred years. From foxhunting to cricket, shooting to horseracing, and golf to motorsport, each of the sports stems from a personal passion of one of the dukes. This lecture by James Peill, F.S.A., curator of the Goodwood Collection, takes guests on a historic journey starting in the 17th century with the escapades of the first Duke of Richmond, through the 18th and 19th centuries (with interludes in Brussels and Scotland), and ending in the present day, all set against a backdrop of British history. $10 per Member. $15 per nonmember.
