Hauser & Wirth Somerset Welcomes Her Majesty The Queen

29 Mar 2019

On Thursday 28 March 2019, we had the great privilege of welcoming Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to Hauser & Wirth Somerset.

Her Majesty received a guided tour through the Threshing Barn, the Rhoades Gallery and the Bourgeois Gallery and had the opportunity to view our current exhibitions ‘Catherine Goodman. Eve’ and ‘Matthew Day Jackson. Pathetic Fallacy’. She met artist Catherine Goodman and Luis Laplace, the architect who led the restoration of Durslade Farm and Farmhouse.
Director of Education, Debbie Hillyerd, introduced Her Majesty to a group of Year 10 pupils from Sexey’s School, Bruton, who were taking part in educational activities on the day. The teams from the gallery and Roth Bar & Grill were all present for this special occasion.

Her Majesty visited the gallery as part of an official visit to Bruton. After arriving into Castle Cary train station in the morning, she visited Ditcheat yard and arrived at our neighbouring King’s Bruton School following a drive down Bruton high street which was full of flags, residents and local school children. Her Majesty officially opened the Queen Elizabeth Music School on the occasion of their 500th anniversary.
