We are delighted to announce that Eastgate House will opening to the public from Wednesday 19 July.
The Friends of Eastgate House have funded the conservation of four glass panes, or ‘quarries’ which were previously located in the stair turret of Eastgat House.. The fragments contain fascinating inscriptions and dates from the time the house was a boarding school. On one of the panes reads ‘George Hobart, glazier, 1815’.
Members and guests of the Friends of Eastgate House were treated to a special event at Eastgate house on Tuesday 25 April.
Welcomed by representatives from Medway Council, visitors had an opportunity to wander around the many rooms of the house, which have been beautifully restored, painted and finished.
The Guildhall Museum has announced its Autumn Lecture Series and has offered the Friends of Eastgate House a warm welcome.
The series of five lectures are themed around the events of one of the most pivotal dates in English history, 1066. They start on 29 September with historian and TV presenter, Dr Marc Morris and run through to 24 November 2016.
