Lunchtime Lecture: A Victorian Christmas
The Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Lecture Theatre, Tickets: Free
The Victorians invented or perfected many of our most treasured Christmas traditions: Christmas cards, Christmas trees, and Christmas crackers can trace their popularity to the mid-nineteenth century. Fashion joined in the festive spirit, too, with designs and fabrics that made the most of the holiday mood. For this talk we're joined by Rebecca Mitchell, editor of Fashioning the Victorians, to explore the fads and fashions of the Victorian yuletide, from dresses to decorations.
