In November 1966, Eric Bracey unveiled Eskbank House, his gift to the community of Lithgow, as a museum. To celebrate the 50th anniversary, Eskbank House is holding an afternoon tea of talks and music. David Bracey, Eric’s grandson, and Mayor Stephen Lesslie will attend, while Toner Stevenson of Sydney Living Museums and Naomi Parry, historian and Council’s acting cultural development officer, will discuss the history of the house and its part in the community of Lithgow. Guitarist and singer Pete Armstrong, from the Mitchell Conservatorium, will evoke some of the sounds of the house, from the 1920s to the 1960s. Join us at the house from 2pm until 5pm on Sunday 20 November for this free event.
