History Wardrobe Presents… Bad Girls and Bonnets

£6.50 per person

Suitable for ages 16+

Jane Austen’s guide to being brazen.

A bold, brash and beautiful celebration of Austen’s wicked women, and a truly revelatory look at clothes & crime in the eighteenth century – an era when stocking-theft or silk-smuggling carried serious consequences.

Bad Girls and Bonnets features fabulous original costume items, criminal history and readings from the outrageous Miss Austen herself.

Doors open at 6.30pm.
