Residents are being invited to look around Doncaster’s iconic Mansion House tomorrow as part of the town’s heritage festival.

The open day event, between 10am and 2pm on Friday, May 6, is being organised by Friends of the Mansion House. Several members of the group will be wearing Victorian costumes and pianist Brian Limb will provide entertainment.

Margaret Herbert, of Friends of the Mansion House, said: “We are holding this open day so people can come and see this beautiful building for themselves.

“It’s a big part of Doncaster’s history. There are only three Mansion Houses in the country, and I think it’s the best one. We need to get people using it.

“We decided to dress up as it will get people’s attention, it’s an attraction. There’ll be at least four or five of us in costume. I’ll be wearing a big head dress with feathers in and a black dress.

Everyone is welcome. We hope the sun will shine and we will draw in a good crowd.”
