Visit: Priest’s House Museum and Fashion Museum

Saturday 07 May 2016

Join WECS for a “get yourself there” visit to these two museums in Dorset.

Details of how to get there and the location of pay and display car parking will be sent on booking.

10.00-12.00 The morning will be spent at the Priest's House Museum, Wimborne, which has a small costume collection. There will be coffee/tea provided on arrival. We will be given a talk on their clothing and textile collections and a tour of their recently built store, as well as time to explore the museum.

12.00-14.00 Plenty of time to have lunch in either town or bring your own. The drive to Blandford takes just 20 minutes.

14.00-16.00 In the afternoon at the Fashion Museum, Blandford we will have a talk on the collection, which started life at Mrs Penny’s Costume Cavalcade and is now an accredited museum, followed by time to explore its ten rooms of costume dating from the 18th to the late C20th.

The report on this event is included in the Autumn 2016 issue of WECS Wardrobe.
