May to October 2016
Outdoor exhibition presented on place De La Dauversière in collaboration with the Reford Gardens.
Pick a Peck of Pumpkin
Discover the world of squash, with the Pick a Peck of Pumpkins... outdoor exhibition, which will be presented for free in the Governor’s Garden.
Every year, the pumpkin becomes the queen of autumn. However, in so honouring her, we forget about the other members of the squash family that are used in our daily life. They are not only found on our plates, but are also used in beauty products, on stage, as instruments in concerts, and as decorations in dining rooms. Cultivated over 5000 years ago by the Native People, squash are now present in all continents. What a history to discover!
The Pick a Peck of Pumpkins... exhibition is adapted from the Musée-conservatoire ethnologique de Haute-Provence, Prieuré de Salagon.
Around the Fireplace...Holiday Traditions
Every Holiday season, five of the Château’s fireplaces will be sumptuously decorated according to a particular theme. Each mantelpiece will explain the origin of a specific Christmas tradition: Christmas cards, Christmas stockings, advent calendars and more – it’ll be well worth gathering around the fireside!
