This lecture will focus on the 19th and 20th centuries, exploring the origins, design, and evolution of Coronation dress and jewels – from the richly embroidered fashionable dresses to the magnificent robes to the Crown Jewels worn on these momentous and glittering occasions.

Tickets are £25 per person and include a glass of Fortnum and Mason champagne upon arrival; 100% of proceeds from the ticket sales will go to support the charity, The Creative Dimension Trust, and the workshops it holds to support young people in developing craft skills.
