‘To get ahead, get a hat!’ Costumed talk by Kindra Jones – postponed

18 May 2021

Costume expert Kindra Jones explores the surprising history of hats in a talk at Bury St Edmunds Guildhall.

For much of history, hats and other headwear have been the essential finishing touch to any outfit. In this talk, Kindra will use hats to explore the ages, not only looking at how and why hats have changed over time, but also using them as a springboard to look at wider society as well – from princesses and kings, to revolutionaries and servants. Come find out about the hat that caused dogs to bark, children to cry and a woman to faint!

Date – Sunday 27th June

Time – 2:30pm – 5pm

Tickets – £8
