Talks - History; Talks - General Interest

Event Description

Explore Georgian London: riots, pleasure gardens & silk gowns. The Georgian period was a time with highs and lows. In this talk, we see new styles of architecture, music, and clothes for fashionable London, while daily life experienced more mundane upsets from such things as theft, drinking, or the relocation of a ‘fat Venus’. Find out about the interiors of ordinary homes, two Turks who saved the life of a future king, and days of rioting in the streets.
