Join in weekend of fun as Forty Hall reopens
Thursday, 28 June 2012
RESIDENTS are being invited to register for the grand reopening of Forty Hall this weekend, celebrating the £4million revamp of the Jacobean mansion.
With the historic home, in Forty Hill, Enfield, restored to its former glory, a two-day extravaganza is planned, with music, dancing and a hog roast, as well as free, guided tours around the building for members of the public.
Those who wish to take part are asked to contact the council so organisers have an idea of numbers. Tickets are also available to costumed shows at 6pm and 7.30pm on both days.
A spokeswoman for Enfield Council said: “It is going to be a really fun weekend. There will be music and dancing.
‘We’ve got a number of different musical groups, some playing music from the 17th century. There will be costumes and children dancing on the back lawn.
“We are so lucky because there are very few properties so close to London that have huge grounds like this.”
The restoration work took two years to complete and was funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Enfield Council.
The next stage of the restoration work will be the transformation of the grounds as much of the Forty Hall Park landscape is improved through a further £1.8million grant from the HLF.
Contact the council on 020 8363 8196 if you wish to join in the reopening weekend.
