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.

£12 (early bird) / £15

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.
