New Clothing Exhibition – Bankfield Museum

Opening the Wardrobe: On display now in Bankfield Museum’s Fashion Gallery

A unique exhibition celebrating women’s clothes and the stories they tell. This exclusive exhibition features highlights from the private collection of dress historian Lucy Adlington. Lucy runs the History Wardrobe series of costume-in-context presentations, combining history, fashion and tons of fun. The collection spans over 250 years of design, making, wearing and sharing. Whether ‘glad rags’ or just rags, this exhibition celebrates the way clothes hold powerful memories and link us across generations.

There will be four History Wardrobe presentations at Bankfield Museum during 2023.

The exhibition is now open to the public Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-4pm in the Fashion Gallery at Bankfield Museum, Akroyd Park, Boothtown Rd, Halifax HX3 6HG
