As part of a ‘Huguenot Summer’, Boughton House is hosting a special exhibition during August 2015, celebrating the extraordinary French legacy of the Huguenot artwork preserved there.

Many of the treasures were commissioned at the end of the 17th century and beginning of the 18th century by Ralph Montagu, the 1st Duke of Montagu – patron of the multitude of talented French immigrants.

Boughton provides a rare opportunity to see how English culture was boosted by their skills with paintings, furniture, printing, silver, maps, sculpture, guns, porcelain, and more, all created by Huguenot artists and craftsmen.

Boughton House’s guided house tours will also be tailored to highlight these treasures and a special exhibition will be hosted in the Stewards Hall.

Please note, the Exhibition will also be extended to groups who wish to visit in September.  Visit Boughton House’s Group Tours page for more details.

Hear the Exhibition’s curator, Paul Boucher, talk about the Huguenots on BBC Northampton (1 hour 45 minutes into the programme).

The exhibition is proudly supported by: Institut Français

Visit our Exhibitions page to see a selection of images from the exhibition and to read the panels contributed by the Migration Museum Project.
