A fascinating exhibition is open at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle: "Birds of Paradise: Plumes & Feathers in Fashion"
25 October 2014 to 19 April 2015 -http://www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/VisitUs/WhatsOn/BirdsOfParadisePlumesFeathersInFashion.aspx. The museum itself is well worth a visit as well .. Built by John and Josephine Bowes in the 19th Century in the style of a French Chateau, it houses an amazing diverse collection of Art, including a Silver Swan automaton which is still in working order and is displayed daily - a fabulous attraction .. Our lovely Thwaite Cottages are nearby too, very handy :)
