Antiques Roadshow presenter Lars Tharp paid a visit to historic Capesthorne Hall, Siddington, near Macclesfield to meet Friends of the Whitworth Art Gallery.


The popular antiques expert addressed the invited audience in the Capesthorne lecture theatre on the theme of Harlots, Rakes and Crashing China. Much of the talk concentrated on the works of William Hogarth.


Guests, most of whom are supporters of the Manchester-based gallery, enjoyed a buffet meal and drinks after the talk. All proceeds will go to the Whitworth Art Gallerys redevelopment appeal.
