Wightwick, the home of the Mander family who made their money as paint manufacturers, is a remarkable Arts and Crafts building, which remains largely true to the vision of Sir Geoffrey and his second wife Lady Rosalie.  They collected Pre Raphaelite drawings, which together with a recent gift of little known early Rossetti studies, are on show in the house.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery is noted for its holdings of British Pop Art and works relating to the Troubles in Northern Ireland.  Introduction by Marguerite Nugent, and a chance to view the exhibition Victoria and Albert: Our Lives in Watercolour on loan from the Royal Collection as well as a ceramic installation which will evolve over time by Phoebe Cummings, winner of the inaugural Woman’s Hour Craft Prize
