Maitland Regional Museum holds fundraiser - Let Them Eat Cake at Brough House

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The historical ties between the Napoleonic Wars and the town of Maitland will be on show at a fundraiser for Maitland Regional Museum.
The July 16 event, titled Let Them Eat Cake, will help the museum fund exhibitions and pay for ongoing costs.
It will be the museum’s first fundraiser since it moved into a permanent space at Brough House in January.
The afternoon is one of several Napolean themed events the museum will hold this year.
Maitland Regional Museum president Janece McDonald said the Napolean era had a lot of influence on Maitland, exemplified in street names such as Napolean Lane and Blomfield Street.
