Like many writers I’m signed up to newsletters from museums and history related organisations, so I thought I’d share with you news of the next main exhibition at the Fashion Museum in Bath.

Assembly Rooms and Fashion Museum, Bath reduced size

The Fashion Museum in Bath

It’s called A History of Fashion in 100 Objects. It opens 19th March this year and runs until 1st January 2018.

The exhibition showcases fashion history from 1500 to the present day. So there will be something for every visitor whether you’re a fan of Regency fashion or the elegant gowns of the House of Worth, and then on into the 20th century and beyond.

I like the idea of the ten shoe ‘moments’ they’re including, and ten ‘historical looks’ for children (1700s – 2000s).

Sadly  I have to plan well in advance and save up for trips that can’t be managed within the day – as they’ll require hotel stays, so I probably won’t get to visit the 100 fashion objects until 2017.

If you’re fortunate to live within a short travelling distance from exhibition venues, do visit. So many museums depend upon local support to keep running, whether they’re well known, or a small museum in your town or nearest city.

Meanwhile I’ll be checking the newsletters for any exhibitions or events of interest I can get to.

If you know of any museum newsletters that you’d recommend signing up to, do please share the details in the comments…
