POLDARK AN EXHIBITION OF 18th CENTURY OBJECTS, COMBINED WITH SPECIAL IMAGES FROM THE HIT TV SERIES

An exhibition combining historical objects and ‘stills' from the current Poldark TV series go on display at the Royal Cornwall Museum from 6th February 2017.


The exhibition has been made possible by the generous support of Poldark TV production company, Mammoth Screen, and the support of Andrew Graham, son of Poldark author Winston Graham. Andrew is an executor of his father's literary estate and a consultant on the TV series starring Aidan Turner.


The exhibition illustrates many aspects of Cornish life during the Poldark era and reveals some of the history behind the Poldark novels.
Andrew Graham said; "I want visitors to the museum to see an authentic blend of historical objects from the 1800s but with a twist."


"I also wanted to acknowledge my father's unique relationship with the Museum, where he left many of his original notebooks, showing his novels written in long hand, as well as the typewriter on which he wrote to his many fans. "


He continued; "The museum also runs the Winston Graham Literary Prize with a £3,000 prize fund for the winning entry. This year's deadline is 1st June 2017, we hope budding writers will enter."
