Pear Day 2018

Join our fabulous staff, volunteers and Friends of Cannon Hall for a delightful day in the countryside and taste some of our historic pear varieties from trees over 200 years old! The day includes tours of the site from 2.30pm to 4pm with the Parks for People team.

De Morgan Collection

On display in the hall is a hand-picked selection of artworks from the De Morgan Collection. It is an unparalleled collection of work by the late 19th and early 20th century ceramicist William De Morgan and his artist wife Evelyn Pickering De Morgan.


Cannon Hall is a unique venue for weddings and civil partnerships and the perfect setting for your special day. Fantastic photo opportunities can be found both inside the Hall and in the landscaped gardens.

Parks for People Project

Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens has secured earmarked funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for major improvements and conservation work around the gardens and park, including the restoration of Cannon Hall's Georgian lakes.

Hear My Voice

Venue Hire
