Well-dressed on Wednesday
Here's a reminder - on Wednesday next week (8 August) at 11am, 2pm and 4pm, History Wardrobe will bring Jane Eyre - The Well-Dressed Governess to the Parsonage.
Here is what they say about it:
The genteel, demure and modest fashions of the 1840s could sometimes clothe a woman of high intelligence and passionate intensity. Charlotte Brontë was one such woman. Her greatest fictional heroine - Jane Eyre - was another. Gillian Stapleton uses exquisite replica clothes and delightful original items to examine Jane's wardrobe in detail, following her fictional career from charity schoolgirl to governess then fairytale bride, exploring just how close the sartorial links between Jane and her creator really were.
Contact the Parsonage on 01535 640196 for the latest info
