Each speaker will infuse this year’s Show theme, A Sense of Place, into their talks. A sense of place is defined as a unique collection of qualities and characteristics that provide meaning to a location. Sense of place is what makes one home different from another, but sense of place is also what makes our physical surroundings worth caring about. With the show being the largest antique and art show of its kind in the country, the theme is the perfect way to highlight what makes your space your own and meaningful to your friends and family.
This year, the Show will be headlined with a lecture full of history as Charles, 9th Earl Spencer discusses the story of Althorp, an estate where 19 generations of the Spencer family have resided. Their driving passions have included art, books, and priceless antiquities, culminating in one of the finest collections in the world. Earl Spencer will share how he navigates the blend of rich family history and the demands of running a modern estate visited by thousands.
