The Victorians in Ludlow With Sarah Thursfield

Event details

  • Price: £45 (inc refreshments)
  • Venue: Ludlow Museum Resource Centre

Victoria reigned for two generations, from the stagecoach to the motor car and from the Penny Post to the telephone exchange. Find out how much more there is to ‘Victorian costume’ than men in frock coats and women in crinolines – how industry, empire, sewing-machines and sport all produced change and variety. The three sessions will look at the dress of men, women and children through illustrated lectures, examples from the museum collection and time to browse a range of source material.
