Tea Gowns and Tea Time – History Wardrobe Presentation

Cole Porter  said “Anything Goes”, about how the world ran in the 1930s.  This was the decade of streamlining, speed and style, ladies of the High Society enjoyed nothing better than talking about fads, fashions, kings and cakes.

You can ‘eavesdrop’ on their chat at Bagshaw Museum, Batley, on Saturday 11 February 2017 – when the History Wardrobe presents ‘Tea Gowns and Tea Time’.

As the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon cream tea, ladies of the day will be revealing how diet and drastic underwear helped them fit into the sleek frocks that were fashionable. They’ll also reveal who they listened to on the wireless, and what they went to see at the pictures, as well as their thoughts on the future.

There will also be top tips on cake baking, linen laundry and tea-leaf reading.

When does it start?

The presentation starts at 2pm on Saturday 11 February 2017 at Bagshaw Museum.
