Cliffe Castle Curiosity Shop

  • 6 May — 30 June 2017 *on now

In this special collaboration South Square Centre have teamed up with Cliffe Castle Museum to put together an exhibition celebrating this unique heritage building. South Square will be taking a look into the compelling collections on display at Cliffe Castle and asking artists Amelia Crouch, Luke Drozd and Katch Skinner to respond by making new artefacts for South Square’s Gallery and reproductions which can be sold at the Cliffe Castle Gift Shop.

Perhaps the least known of Bradford’s Museums, Keighley’s Cliffe Castle, began life as the home of Victorian millionaire and textile manufacturer Henry Isaac Butterfield. Built in the Victorian era with Neo-gothic influence the interiors feature a grand display of international art and French decoration. The Butterfield’s connections with the Roosevelt’s of America had great influence on the features of the property, and it became a hotspot for glamorous social events of the era.
