Catch ‘Georgians Revealed’ at the British Library
Date Posted: 28/02/14
This is your last chance to catch the British Library’s major exhibition, 'Georgians Revealed: Life, Style and the Making of Modern Britain', so why not book yourself a last minute hotel deal to the capital and make a weekend of it?
Running until March 11th, the exhibition provides a fascinating insight into life in 18th and 19th century Britain and showcases over 200 never before seen artefacts that shed light on popular culture.
It features objects such as rare books from King George III’s personal library, the first ever British fashion magazines and Britain’s first celebrity scandal published in the press.
Dr Moira Goff, lead curator of the exhibition said: “We’re thrilled to be telling these fascinating stories from the Georgian period, a somewhat overlooked era. We’re showing off the Library’s unbeatable 18th and 19th century printed collections, from everyday throw away adverts, tickets and receipts, to gargantuan and exquisitely illustrated books that King George III himself would have treasured. We hope visitors enjoy the exhibition’s playful atmosphere and make the connections between then and now that really bring the period to life.”
