Lunch and a Costume Store Tour - "Ruff Stuff"

Friday, 15 March 2019. Final timings to be confirmed but this is a LUNCHTIME EVENT– “Ruff stuff” Lunch at Arbor House and a guided tour of the Museum’s Costume Store. £28 for members, £35 for guests, to include a 2-course lunch, talk and tour. Join us for an exciting behind the scenes visit to the Museum’s collection of historic costumes in the company of Bob Entwistle, Senior Conservation Officer, and enjoy lunch at the Arbor House restaurant adjacent to the Museum.

Over coffee, sit back for a talk about the collection from one of the world’s foremost authorities on ruffs, Constance Mackenzie. Constance has been making historical costumes for over 15 years. She works regularly in film and television, and for the Globe Theatre, the V&A, London Children’s  Ballet and Glyndebourne Opera. Numbers are strictly limited to 20, however no more than 10 can visit the costume store at any one time. So we have devised an itinerary that will enable 10 to visit before lunch and 10 afterwards. Please see the booking form on page 26 of the Friends’ most recent newsletter.
