Maitland and Hunter history at Brough House in 2017

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Brough House, the hub of Hunter history, has released its schedule of exhibitions for 2017 and everything from warfare to fashion is on the cards.

This year the Maitland Regional Museum is partnering with the Clothing Museum and Friends of Grossmann House to turn the historic home on Church Street into a centre for culture.

The year kicked off with Future’s Fashion, which exhibits the major textile works of local students. It reveals the next generation of textile designers until March 19.
If the walls of Brough House could talk their stories would speak straight to the heart of Maitland. And from April 8 to 23 Brough Voices will do just that when it shares the stories of the people who have lived and worked in the property from 1870 until the present day.
