An ‘Austen’-tatious event! You are invited to join Mrs Kitty Woodcock & Captain John Swayne as they dress for a stroll through Georgian Bath. This lively talk will feature two actors being dressed in Jane Austen era costumes generously donated by the West of England Costume Society (WECS). You’ll have a chance to see these fine costumes up close whilst Christine provides interesting and enriching commentary on the fabrics, manufacturing process, and fashion trends of the time.
Surbiton Salons would like to thank members of the West of England Costume Society (WECS) for providing the outfits for Mrs Kitty Woodcock & Captain John Swayne. WECS promotes the study of dress & its history & these two outfits were reconstructed from objects in the collection of Salisbury Museum.
