Fashion Show & Afternoon Tea

April 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Last year’s Victorian Fashion Show (a first) proved so popular we’re doing it again! Registration details ($40 per person) are available HERE. The show in the Rebecca Johnson Theatre inside Historic Rugby’s Visitor Centre at 1 p.m. Eastern will be followed by a sumptuous afternoon tea at 2:30 p.m. Eastern in nearby Hester Hall.  Don’t miss it! And for the first time, YOU can be part of it as well. If you have an outfit or costume from the 1880-1910 era to wear, just send photos of it (front, back and side) by day of the show to this EMAIL for review by period fashion expert Susan Jarrett. [Costumes designed for Cosplay, Holidays or Fantasy role play are not appropriate for this event.]

Travel back to 1880-1910 to enjoy the wonderful fashions that were popular in the days of Rugby’s founding. An amazing program is being put together to showcase the era. Please feel free to wear your Victorian best and enjoy this festive afternoon. Fashion Show in the theatre starts at 1 pm. with the tea to follow beginning at 2:30. All times are Eastern.

If you are coming as part of group please let us know HERE so we can arrange seating at the tea appropriately.
