Madrid Tour

11th - 15th June 2016

The last FHS trip to Madrid, organised about ten years ago, offered members a broad overview of the major furniture collections in and around the city and an opportunity to meet with Spanish furniture scholars. The focus of a new stufy tour to this city, being planned for early summer of 2016, will be eighteenth-century furniture, interiors and collecting.

Participants will be able to see royal palaces and museum collections in the company of the curators in charge and access some private collections. A number of guided visits, tailored specifcially to the topic of this overseas event, are being planned, as well as an informal gathering with short presentations by scholars whose research ties in with the subject.

Work on this trip is in progress. Members may register their interest with the Events Secretary and information will be sent out when available.

The FHS Grants Committee now meet quarterly to consider all grant applications, either for independent travel/incidental expenses for the purpose of study or research, or for participation in FHS foreign and UK study trips. Please contact Jo Norman at for further information and grant application forms.

This trip was advertised in the November 2015 and February 2016 newsletters and is now fully subscribed.
