Last chance to see Edwardian costume exhibition at Peterborough Museum

Don’t miss out on seeing the sophisticated styles and classic costumes of the Edwardian era, as seen in award-winning dramas such as Downton Abbey, at Peterborough Museum’s popular La Belle Époque exhibition. This will be your last chance to see the exhibition because it closes on the 6 May

This exhibition is an absolute ‘must’ for all lovers of fashion and has been highly praised in the Museum’s guestbook, with visitors describing the display as “splendid; most informative and beautiful”, as well as “a brilliant exhibition from start to finish”.

The exhibition features costumes from a time known as ‘La Belle Époque’ (the beautiful era) elegantly displayed to create a snapshot of Peterborough life before the Great War changed the city forever.

See the characteristic styles of this iconic decade: the changing silhouettes, the tall starched collars, and the wide brimmed hats!

The last day of the exhibition will be on Monday 6 May. Entry to the exhibition at Peterborough Museum is FREE, except on special event days, when admission charges apply.
