Mansion Exhibitions for 2020
There are two fascinating exhibition spaces in the Mansion: the permanent Maurice Egerton Exhibition Room and the Steward’s Room which houses regularly changing shows relating to Tatton Park.
We had prepared two exhibitions for visitors to explore in the Mansion from 28th March 2020. Unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown situation, the Mansion has yet to re-open for high season. However, we've pulled together some of the highlights and are delighted to share them with you here. We also very much hope you will be able to visit us soon and experience the exhibitions in person.
Japanese Garden: The Legacy of Alan de Tatton
This exhibition marks 100 years since the death of Alan de Tatton, 3rd Baron Egerton of Tatton (1845-1920). The legacy of his ten-year ownership of Tatton Park includes one of the finest examples of a Japanese Garden in Europe.
After visiting the 1910 Japan-British Exhibition in London, Alan de Tatton was inspired to create his very own Japanese Garden. Discover more about the history and development of his garden, the inspiration behind it and his lasting legacy.
Behind the Lens: Photography of Maurice Egerton, the last Lord Egerton
Join us to celebrate the centenary of Maurice, 4th Lord Egerton’s inheritance of the Tatton Estates. This photographic exhibition shows a collection of images illustrating his travels and passions from around the world. Maurice was a keen photographer and never went anywhere without his camera, capturing fascinating moments as he went, such as:
- earliest aerial images taken from hot air balloons
- his involvement in pioneering flight with the Wright Brothers
- the first Grand Prix motor racing
- exploring the Yukon and expeditions in Africa
