Living History Weekend: What Not to Wear

August 17 @ 8:00 am - August 18 @ 5:00 pm

Ever wondered what lies beneath the voluminous skirts of a Georgian lady? Or perhaps where you might hide your hanky? As for gentlemen, imagine no zips (tricky) while wearing some very calf-flattering stockings and high heels (trickier still). So many fashion faux pas to be made for the unwary twenty-first century person.

Meet The Mannered Mob across one fashion-focused weekend to find out What Not To Wear when at home with the Georgians. They’ll tell you all the things you have wanted to know about life behind closed doors… plus a little bit more!

Included with admission to Fairfax House (Free to Members of Historic Houses, Art Fund and Yorkshire Great Houses)
