hidden treasures jan 2019

This Saturday sees the launch of the long awaited exhibition about Broomfield House and the surrounding park, organised jointly by Enfield Museum and the Broomfield House Trust with the support of the Enfield Society.  The exhibition, Hidden Treasures - Revealing Broomfield House and Park, runs until 6th January 2019. 

Many local people will remember when Broomfield House was open to the public, some will have taken there to be weighed as babies or visited its museum, art displays and café.  The exhibition's photographs, paintings and objects - salvaged after the fires - will bring back memories.

One of the glories of Broomfield House was its staircase adorned by murals painted by Gerard Lanscroon.  These were rescued from the fire and have been in storage ever since.  The exhibition will include a newly restored section of the murals, depicting the godess Minerva.

There will be an accompanying programme of events, some at the Dugdale, others in Broomfield Park, suitable for all ages from babies upwards, comprising talks on the history of both house and park, craft sessions, an art exhibition, a poetry workshop, guided tours of the park, a children's tree trail, a special halloween event and a "Taste of Broomfield" evening

The opening of the exhibition last night went very well. The restored Minerva panel is a triumph and the short film of the work is a revelation. See the Dugdale centre's short posting at

To avoid any doubt, the restoration of the Minerva panel was funded by The Broomfield House Trust with the assistance of a grant from the Enfield Society.
