The Willoughbys of Wollaton Hall

As part of the ongoing redevelopment of gallery displays at Wollaton Hall, Nottingham City Museums & Galleries collaborated with heritage award-winning regional Company, Dragon Breath Theatre, to produce the stunning Cassandra Room.

The room focuses on the first hundred years of Wollaton’s new Hall from the 1580s.

It tells the dramatic saga of the Willoughby family in those years, told through the eyes of Cassandra Willoughby, who arrived at the Hall to become its mistress aged just 17 years old in 1686.


We are excited to hear your feedback on the Cassandra Room. By filling in the survey below, you’ll also be entered into a prize draw! Please leave your comments and feedback using the survey monkey link below:

Paper copies of this survey are also available at Wollaton Hall in the gallery.
