Ten years have passed since Valentine’s Mansion opened its doors to the public for the very first time. Since that Valentine’s Day in 2009 when thousands of visitors queued excitedly for their first glimpse of the newly restored building, the public’s’ love for the Mansion has grown and grown.
We’ve had some fantastic moments over the last decade, from brilliant exhibitions and events, to beautiful weddings and celebrations, and lots of high profile activities that shot Valentines into the limelight – The Great British Bake Off, Her Majesty The Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay – no name but a few.
To mark this important anniversary, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and asking you to share your fondest memories of Valentines Mansion from the last ten years. So cast your mind back – perhaps you took part in a creative workshop, enjoyed a family outing, or did you get married at the Mansion? Whatever it is, we’d love to hear from you. Send us your memories and help us create a special display for visitors to enjoy over the summer. If you don’t have photos of your visit to Valentines, write us a quote, a limerick, send us a sketch of your memory – whatever you fancy!
We’ll start you off with a few, these are some of our best bits from the last decade….
There are lots of ways you can get involved. Share your memories on our social media pages:
Alternatively, you can email Hardip.firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you! This display can be seen at Valentines Mansion every Sunday – Wednesday during august, 11am-4pm, free entry.
