Georgian Society Talks

Georgian Society Talks

Georgian Society: Free talks at the Gothic Warehouse by the Cromford Canal (across the road from Cromford Mills).
Georgian assemblies, routs and masquerades: society and manners at Buxton & beyond  Dr Peter Collinge
Historian Dr Peter Collinge provides an entertaining guide to the pleasures and pitfalls of assemblies, routs and masquerades in Georgian England. He draws on a wealth of contemporary evidence, including letters, journals and illustrations, to reveal the sights, sounds and smells of some of the grandest public spaces in the land. Rules, access arrangements, dress codes and conduct (not all of it good) are brought to life through the expectations, experiences and opinionated reactions those who attended these select gatherings.
The Children of The Industrial Revolution By Philip Parkin
Life for the mills’ youngest workers in the early days of the factory system.
