Dare to be Different…

Scandal and Romance at Saltram
Friday 9th May, 6:00pm

Still a largely undiscovered treasure, and the result of centuries of sophistication and extravagance, Saltram is a National Trust property that offers a fascinating insight into country-estate life throughout the centuries. The dramatic property was originally home to the Parker family, whose past scandals and romantic associations are brought to life with actors and narration in this spectacular evening event.

Part of the Plymouth’s History Festival, Scandal and Romance explores more of the aristocratic stories and nuances as Georgian characters are brought to life with bespoke costumes and dialogue. The house will be candlelit and the performance followed by wine and nibbles. Booking is essential; all tickets £12. Find out more…
