People were able to hear the weird and wonderful stories behind some of the more unusual objects held by Spalding’s two great treasure troves - Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Spalding Gentlemen’s Society – at a special event.

The Cabinet of Curiosities, held at the South Holland Centre, was a celebration of the collecting instinct, from domestic curios to the treasures of the orient and featured illustrated talks from local collectors, curators and Something Wonderful artists Jonathan Raisin and Elizabeth Willow, who are pictured with John Cleary, of Spalding Gentlemen’s Society and Julia Knight, of Ayscoughfee Hall Museum.
