Here is a round up of interesting events organised around the UK by English Heritage this weekend.



Kenwood House / Orangery, London

Mon 1 Aug – Sun 23 Oct 2011, 11:30am – 4pm

This small exhibition describes the difficulties faced in preserving veneer and marquetry furniture at Kenwood House and the need for further research. Find out more about the range of methods used to understand the collection and improve its preservation. There is the opportunity to discover details of each technique and the information they provide on the collection at Kenwood House. The exhibition will give visitors a better understanding of the types of scientific monitoring used and the research undertaken on collections. It should also help explain how this information can help improve the care of the collections for future generations.
