Sunday 18th November
Philip Taubenheim - Antiques Afternoon in the Great Hall

A very interesting and entertaining Friends event.  Philip Taubenheim of Wotton Auction Rooms spoke about his background 
and work as an auctioneer, with stories of various finds, plus developments in the operations 
of auction houses arising from increased use of the internet and a more global reach.

In speaking about some of the interesting objects brought along by Friends, 
Philip provided an insight into what is in fashion and what is now difficult to sell.

More information in February's Berkeley Buttress.

Scrumptious Afternoon Tea in the Long Drawing Room. 
Thank you to Berkeley W.I.
We also had the opportunity to admire the wonderful tapestries which are looking so much better 
as a result of the fundraising activities of the Friends of Berkeley Castle.
