Poster for Victorian Fashion - from the cradle to the grave

The Regency Town House welcomes you to an afternoon with Marion May and Sarah Tobias.

Marion May discovered a designer wedding dress, fell in love with it and started collecting historical and period clothes. That was in the 1970s; her impressive collection now covers a 100 years of fashion from the mid-Victorian era to the 1950s. Marion exhibits and lectures extensively on historic fashion and we are delighted to have her back for this, her fifth visit to The Regency Town House. 

She is joined by Sarah Tobias, lecturer in social, cultural and local history who will explore everyday Victorian life.

All profits from this event will go towards the maintenance and continuing restoration of The Regency Town House where the event is held.

The 'Marion & Sarah Show' is always incredibly popular and tickets will sell-out quickly, so go to Eventbrite to book your tickets now.
