Jerome Phillips and Mark Westgarth ‘In Conversation’ at Bowes Museum

This coming Saturday, 27th April, we are running an ‘In Conversation’ event at The Bowes Museum as part of the activities around the SOLD! exhibition – the exhibition closes on 5th May, so still time to see it.

The ‘In Conversation’ is a FREE event, it starts at 2.15pm and will last about an hour or so – you need to book a place though, which you can do at by clicking this link http://portal.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/public/event/eventBooking.aspx?id=EVT03487

Phillips of Hitchin were established in 1884 and remained as a family business until Jerome Phillips, the grandson of Frederick W. Phillips the founder of the business, retired in 2016. I’ll be ‘In Conversation’ with Jerome at the event at The Bowes Museum this Saturday, talking about Jerome’s life as one of the countries leading antique dealers, and about the history of his business, Phillips of Hitchin.

Hope to see you on Saturday at The Bowes Museum!
