Leeds fashion fans have designs on turning back style clock

Have your say

FASHION lovers will be able to turn back the clock to the Victorian era at a talk taking place at Lotherton Hall.

Costume curator Natalie Raw will give expert insight into 19th century trends at the event, which is being held from 2pm to 4pm on Thursday, October 13.

Attendees will also be able to cast their eye over clothes and accessories on display in Lotherton’s fashion galleries.

The event has been organised to tie in with the visitor attraction’s Our Cousin Florence exhibition, which runs until the end of the year.

It explores the life of Florence Nightingale, whose goddaughter, Gwendolen Gascoigne, lived at Lotherton.

Entry to the talk costs £7.50 for adults or £3.50 for Lotherton members and the price includes admission to the estate and afternoon tea.
