Chris and Barbara from The Friends of 78 Derngate were at Abington Park Museum, Northampton recently for their Collectors Day event. Chris's huge collection of Bassett-Lowke catalogues - [ surely one of the largest such collections in the world ] - was of great interest and attracted a steady stream of visitors.
The day was a great success, helped along by many Friends supporters who stopped by, the presence of a great model railway layout from a fellow collector and substantial amounts of chocolate which sadly ran out too soon.
Further images from the day - and the chance to let us know about your own collection - are on our Facebook.
We're delighted to have passed 5000 Twitter followers. This, and our Facebook audience places 78 Derngate amongst the leading group of social media sources for interest in and information about Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It is testament to the tremendous support we receive from visitors to and wider fans of 78 Derngate and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. If you don't currently follow us on Twitter, we invite you to do so - breaking news from the Mackintosh world, art and design, history and future trends - it's all there, and a little different to our Facebook feed.
Thankyou to all our lovely supporters both on Twitter and Facebook. We appreciate your continued support for 78 Derngate. Good things lie ahead!
