Costumes and accessories of yesteryear

Costumes and accessories from the past will be on display for The Meffan’s next exhibition, which will certainly give those with a passion for fashion something to think about.

Step back in time and see what our ancestors wore to work, play, their Sunday best, for military duty and special family occasions such as weddings and christenings.

Angus Museums have a wealth of costume and accessories which are unable to be displayed on a permanent basis.

This, therefore, is a rare opportunity for visitors to see some of the costume collection which is usually kept in storage.

Also on display will be a group of unique artefacts from a private collection relating to Queen Victoria and her family which was recently featured in an episode of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.

These objects were gifted to a member of the Royal Household and have been passed down through the family.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see these artefacts which have never before been on public display.

As well as costume and accessories the exhibition will include paintings and photographs on the theme of costume from Angus Council’s Collection.

The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, April 23and runs until Saturday, May 21.
