History Wardrobe

History Wardrobe presents... Film Stars & Fashion Plates

This event takes place at Bankfield Museum

We all love the stylish designs of Hollywood historical films and TV costume dramas, but how much do they reflect the real clothes of an era, and what would it be like to wear them?

Join dress historian Lucy Adlington and costume specialist Meridith Towne for a delightful exploration of corsets, crinolines, bonnets and bum rolls... with a chance to handle original garments from the Regency era to the 1920s

Friday 4th September. 

Exhibition and museum will be open from 6.00pm; the presentation will begin at 7.30pm.

£12.50 including welcome glass of bubbly. Click on the blue Book Online bar below.

Be inspired by the outfits on display and come dressed in your favourite costume, anything goes! Not compulsory.

This event is suitable for age 12+ accompanied by an adult.
