The Hammond Centenary

100 YEARS OF MISS HAMMOND IN CHESTER

In 2017, The Hammond is celebrating 100 years since Miss Irene Hammond came to Chester. 

On June 13th, 2017 - it was exactly 100 years since Miss Irene Hammond taught her first Dance Class in the Ballroom of The Chester Grosvenor Hotel. To mark this very special anniversary, we celebrated with a 100th Birthday Cake, made for us by Devonshire Bakery, Frodsham, which was shared amongst students, staff and friends of The Hammond!

The Hammond will be hosting a range of performances, workshops, talks and tours, culminating in a Centenary Gala in July 2017. Over the next year, we will also be gathering stories and memories about The Hammond, Miss Irene Hammond and Hoole Bank House.

We would love to hear from anyone who went to the School, or has memories of The House.

Please email Sally Stewart, on Sally.Stewart@thehammondschool.co.uk with your stories / memories.

For glimpses into the unfolding research, please see our centenary blog and Facebook page.
