About us

Discover some familiar and famous faces in the Saloon Galleries at Beningbrough Hall this year with the new exhibition celebrating creative women.

The exhibition of 18 portraits including 14 new contemporary loans runs in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery and brings some important artwork out of London for the first time. Dominating the walls you'll find influential women from the worlds of art, dance, literature and music including Dame Darcey Bussell, Amy Winehouse, JK Rowling and York born, Dame Judi Dench.

Visitors will also find an interactive jukebox playing music from the famous performers and a stunning costume worn by Keira Knightley in her role as Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire in the film The Duchess.

The exhibition runs in the hall until 4 November 2018 and the hall is open on open days from midday. Please see main website for details.
