Sun 7 May 2017, 15:00 – 17:30 BST
In celebration of the Jane Austen bicentenary, author Sarah Jane Downing draws upon her works Fashion in the Time of Jane Austen and Beauty and Cosmetics 1550-1950 to examine the relationships between military uniform and fashion, beauty and literature through the prism of Jane Austen’s works. After the illustrated talk there will be a delicious afternoon tea with handmade scones and cakes.
