Botanical Supper

Chawton House

Date: 28th Jan 2022 - 28th Jan 2022
Time: 6:30pm-9pm
Price: Range from £50 per person

Join exhibition Curator Katie Childs for a special evening tour of ‘Botanical Women’ before sitting down for a Botanical Supper, with a menu inspired by the delights of spring.

‘Botanical Women’ explores the bright and resourceful women whose ground-breaking work contributed to the advancement of botany and plant science. From illustrators to hostesses, writers to weeders, women have played a crucial role in the popularisation of horticulture from as early as the 17th century but have often been hidden from public knowledge.

This exhibition brings these fascinating figures back into the public consciousness and includes many items on display for the first time, including Elizabeth Blackwell’s fascinating and beautiful work ‘A Curious Herbal, 1737-1739,’ the first herbal produced by a woman.

Once your tour has concluded, you will take a seat and enjoy a delicious Botanical Supper.
