There’s a huge amount of interest in Dedham with the opening of the fantastic new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum ‘Constable, The Making of a Master’ so we were delighted to be approached by the museum to be part in an exciting competition.

The prize offers two people a chance to win a two night stay at Maison Talbooth with dinner at Le Talbooth on one evening and milsoms on the other, coupled with a fantastic visit to Aspalls Cider in Suffolk. Aspalls rarely opens its doors to visitors so this really is a unique opportunity. Lunch in the boardroom at Aspalls and a case of Cider is also included in this prize.

For more information and to more importantly enter the competition, follow this link to the V&A Museum website:
