Event Details

A Dress Fit For A King

We’re revealing the hidden stories of women during the eighteenth century at Berrington. Discover stories of the lives, loves and losses of women both upstairs and downstairs.

Uncover the original eighteenth-century Court Mantua dress, owned by Ann Bangham, the wife of Berrington’s original owner, Thomas Harley. Discover more about the Harley’s and the culture of the Georgians.

Working with this exhibition, Herefordshire artist Lorna J Brown has created, ‘Eye am She’ to redress the balance of Berrington’s stories, revealing the hidden feminine aspects and how they are intertwined and integral to the masculine successes at Berrington.

Prices: This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.
Suitability: Assistance dogs are welcome.
Accessibility: The mansion is only accessible via 12 steep stone steps at the entrance.
