Departing from Stocklund Square ...

... and arriving in Greenwich on a very warm day


The Fan Museum

This visit was arranged to follow our excellent talk in January 2022 by Fan Museum Curator, Jacob Moss.  Today we were privileged to be welcomed and guided round parts of the collection by Mrs Hélène Alexander MBE FRSA, Founder and Director of the museum and a most sprightly and engaging lady in her ninetieth year.

The images which follow are displayed by kind permission of the Fan Museum.

Featured in their current exhibition A Bouquet of Fans -

 

It was clear to all that the many fabulous objects on display could only be appreciated fully by close inspection at first hand and a visit to the museum is strongly recommended.  As a taster, many individual items can be viewed on the Fan Museum website


The Painted Hall of the Old Royal Naval College

The Painted Hall has recently reopened after an extensive conservation project lasting two years.
