Dave’s dolls

It’s around this time that people start asking me what big exciting things are going to be happening in our venues next year. Something that I’m looking forward to is the reopening of Sudley House. The venue, in my old student stomping ground of south Liverpool, is currently being refurbished to improve access and create new displays. Dave Moffat, assistant curator of decorative art, is pictured above with two of the dolls that will be going in Sudley’s new Toy Zone, which will feature vintage playthings as well as brand new activities for young visitors. Keep an eye on the website for details of the opening in summer 2007.

There are more dolls in the selection of Christmas e-cards on our website – our conservators have assured me that they have treated the dolls much more carefully than the girl on the Doll’s bathtime e-card!
