Peacocks Exhibition @ Newstead Abbey

Peacocks: The Pomp of Power
17 June 2017 – Summer 2018

Charles II Dressing Room & Edward III Room

Peacocks: The Pomp of Power presents a display of artworks and objects from the Nottingham City Museum and Art Galleries fine art, decorative art, lace, costume and textiles, and natural history collection. The selected works are inspired by the beautifully elegant peacocks that grace the grounds of Newstead Abbey, the ancestral home of the Romantic Poet Lord Byron. Byron was both a sartorial peacock and lover and keeper of these extravagant creatures; hence the title of this exhibition has been taken from Don Juan: Canto The Seventh, a poem by the poet and great eccentric.

The exhibition is shown alongside a small display Japanese Woodcut prints in the Charles II Room.

Usual Parking and House entry fees apply.
