Dr Tankard is social historian at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum (among other places) and derived much of the information for this talk from the Museum’s own archives. She is coming to tell us something about what Ryers and Londoner’s wore in former times.

There will be light refreshments and a raffle.  Members £2.00  Non-Members £3.00  Early arrival is advised so you get a good seat.
