Fashion and Textile Curator led Tour

About

Fashion and Textile Curator led Tour
£18 per person / £9 per child (1 hour)

From caps to corsets, and from gowns to children's clogs, every object has a story. Join Dr Faye Prior from York Castle Museum, as she introduces you to some of these fascinating stories while on a journey through 400 years of fashion.

Based in the Fashion gallery of Shaping the Body, the talk will reveal the hidden histories of some of the gorgeous garments on show. It will focus on star objects from the displays, plus several hand-picked treasures brought out specially from the museum store.

Although social distancing means we can't handle the objects, you will be able to view some up close. There will be seating provided so you can choose whether to sit or stand.

Please note that this tour is stairs access only and is not suitable for people with reduced mobility.
