18th century gossip and baking below stairs

Annie Timlin
Portumna Castle and Gardens

‘18th century gossip and baking below stairs' is a video focusing on life below stairs for the staff in an 18th century kitchen environment in a castle. The project will give an insight into life in Portumna Castle in the 18th Century, the Lord and Lady at that time and life below stairs, while also teaching about hand-making brown soda bread and sharing some of the castle folklore. The short video will be written, directed, acted and filmed by the guide staff from Portumna Castle and will be available to view on the National Heritage Week website.
