TAS Driffield Wolds' Visit to Tennants Auction House
4 Oct 2023
On Wednesday the 13th September, 28 members and guests visited Tennants Auction House at Leyburn, North Yorkshire. After a hospitable reception with tea or coffee and delicious home made biscuits there was an introductory video outlining the history of the firm followed by a fascinating talk by Tennants specialist Diane Sinnott with "hands on" participation with selected antiques.
There then followed a superb two-course luncheon in their bistro. This was followed by a guided tour of the sales rooms with discussions of forthcoming sales and current exhibitions.
After a break for further refreshments, there was the opportunity for independent browsing of the country house exhibition currently on show and to visit the exclusive gift shop.
The visit was considered a great success by all who took part.
