Members of the Shooting Times Woodcock Club and their guests are again invited to join next year’s Dinner.
Shooting Times has announced that next year, the club will be holding its 31st Shooting Times Woodcock Club Dinner on Saturday, 28th March in Worcestershire and the stunning Italianate surroundings of the last of the great Palladian houses, Hagley Hall.
Home to the 12th Viscount Cobham, there has been a park at Hagley, near Stourbridge, since the reign of Edward III. The present landscape was created between 1747 and 1758 with follies designed by Lord Camelford, Thomas Pitt of Encombe, Henry Keene, James ‘Athenian’ Stuart, and Sanderson Miller. Horace Walpole, notoriously hard to please, wrote after a visit to the house in 1753 that ‘I wore out my eyes with gazing, my feet with climbing and my tongue and vocabulary with commending’. The house is truly impressive, with rich Rococo decoration, elaborate friezes and fine artworks making it one of the jewels of England’s 18th century stately homes — and as a venue for our Club dinner, it really is up there with the very best!
