The Collection of Collections Exhibition - Ended

Date Place Contributor
Saturday 14th September
Sunday 15th September
St Mary’s Church

On Saturday 14th September and Sunday 15th September from 12 noon to 5 p.m. St Mary’s Church, North Somercotes, is having a festival with a difference. Instead of the more usual Flower Festival or Art Exhibition there will be a ‘Collection of Collections’ Exhibition.

This isn’t just what might be thought of as ‘collections’, such as stamps, model trains etc, but the sort of thing most of us will have at home – china plates, thimbles, garden gnomes. The collections range from Wedgwood to Charity Pins, via model motorbikes and ties, and much more. If you’re interested in them, then someone else is bound to be. A contestant on a recent TV quiz show admitted to collecting guitar plectrums! There will also be a special exhibit which has been kindly lent by Louth Museum. This is a selection of hats which were worn by Mrs Mary Cuppleditch on civic occasions when her husband George was Mayor of Louth in 1978 – 1979. Mrs Cuppleditch’s hats are a fascinating glimpse into fashion history. They are part of a collection of 60 hats which the museum has. Some hats are high-end designer labels, while others are the sort that many women would have worn at the time. Most were supplied by ‘The Hat Box’ on Upgate in Louth. A great chance to see a selection of Mrs Cuppleditch’s hats which were donated by her family to Louth Museum.
