Community Zoom talks from Royal Collection Trust
The next RCT talk taking place on Wednesday 7 September, when we will hear all about the hidden Windsor gem, Frogmore House. Frogmore House, so named due to the large number of frogs in the area originally, stood on the estates of Great and Little Frogmore, which were bought by Henry VIII in the 16th-century. Hugh May, Charles II’s architect at Windsor, built the house for his nephew Thomas May and his wife Anne Aldworth, since its completion in 1684, it’s been occupied by a succession of Crown tenants.
From 1709 to 1738 the house was leased by the Duke of Northumberland, son of Charles II by the Duchess of Cleveland. Following the death of the Duchess of Northumberland in 1738, Frogmore had a succession of occupants, including Edward Walpole, second son of the Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole.
The talk will start at 2pm, and last approximately an hour.

Please do not visit me at Dragon Hall. I work at different venues throughout the week and I might not be there.
It is essential that all events/workshops or classes are booked in advance. Dragon Hall is still following social distancing guidelines and most sessions are now fully booked. If you would like to attend an event, please ALWAYS contact me beforehand.
Please note that all payments for classes are paid online via our website. If you have any difficulty with this, I am happy to assist. But again, this must be done beforehand and booked with me.
