Period Drama!

Join us for a special online event, in collaboration with the Vagina Museum - inspired by their current exhibition 'Periods: A Brief History' and our own 'Jane Austen Undressed'.

Saturday 24 September
7:00pm — 8:15pm

Join us for a very special online event, getting up close and personal with Georgian women: what they wore, how they washed themselves and their clothes, and how they coped with menstruation, menopause and disease.

This event is a collaboration between the Vagina Museum and Jane Austen’s House, tying into their respective exhibitions: Periods: A Brief History and Jane Austen Undressed.

We’ll be joined by dress historian and Regency dress expert Hilary Davidson for a deep dive into Georgian undergarments – from bare bottoms to heaving bosoms – and by the Vagina Museum staff for a physical examination of how we coped with our bodies in the Georgian era. We’ll finish with a pop quiz and there will be plenty of time to ask questions, chat, fun (and a little Jane Austen!) along the way.
