Secret Lives of Dresses

Tuesday 21st December 2021-Sunday 31st July 2022

SECRET LIES LIVES OF DRESSES:
EVERY DRESS HAS A STORY, LET US TELL YOU OURS...
Some tales are true,
memoirs of faithful diction,
others may be poetry,
or perhaps just purely fiction?

Come to Broadgreen Historic House to enjoy some of our beautiful costumes, find hidden details and uncover the stories of our gowns - from the traditional to the glamourous. Fashion history, mystery and a little dash of trickery.

This exhibition ‘The Secret lies Lives of Dresses’ will showcase a number of costumes never before displayed, and includes some recent acquisitions. It will include a creative and interactive element whereby some costumes are described with their true provenance, and others have been embellished with creative license. The truth will be revealed.
