Thoresby Hall - The Inside 1/7

The inside of the Thoresby Hall hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard, the highlight of which is the Great Hall, so until Wednesday a selection of afternoon shots taken before we sunk into armchairs for a relaxing break after the walk in the grounds I posted last week.

 

During one of our stays at Thoresby Hall they held a singing class/session one morning and it goes without saying we took part. Having quickly 'learnt' a song we sung it to those people trying to enjoy a few moments peace and quiet in the Great Hall, we enjoyed it and hopefully they did as well.

Worth a Wow!
Brian Walbey: With areas like this shos why this hotel is the best in the Warner chain, and the most expensive!
I really like that grand staircase! The entry way is lovely (except for the dead animals hung on the wall...)
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it. Unfortunately dead animal heads on walls of stately homes/hotels are part of the scene in most places like this.
Moi non plus, je n'aime pas les animaux accrochés au mur.
Brian Walbey: Back in the days of rich people and country houses they liked to hunt and kill, in France as well of course, sadly it still goes on round the world but more to make money than 'sport'!

Good that you and Maureen were able to take part, Brian
Brian Walbey: We enjoyed ourselves, we sung 'Love Changes Everything' which I fortunately knew from my days in Loughborough Male Voice Choir.
WOW, Brian. I can imagine the acoustics of the place for your singing session.
Brian Walbey: yes a nice place to sing. We sung 'Love Changes Everything' which I fortunately knew from my days in Loughborough Male Voice Choir.
What a great place to hang out, Brian... there is so much to see.
Brian Walbey: It is a magnificent hall with a great big open fireplace but I couldn't get a decent picture of that because there are sofas and tables in front of it!

The interior is a lot more classy than the exterior. I can imagine that the acoustics are good for singing.

It might echo in here the ceilings are so high. Seems quite a place surely.
Brian Walbey: It was a fine area to sing in Mary.

It does look very grand and fine setting to celebrate Maureen's birthday. I wonder what the other guests made of the singing?

Looks like a lovely place. Reminders of the age of elegance.
