ABOUT THE VENUE
Borwick Hall is mentioned in the Domesday Book as being part of the estates of Roger of Poitou but the oldest parts of the building still in existence date from the 14th century when a pele tower was built on the site.
Now a Grade I listed building, the Hall is built of stone rubble with sandstone dressing and a slate roof and still houses many of the original features.
Session Days has exclusive access to the venue for the weekend and will be organising the seven models onto sets inside and outside the Hall.
