'A thousand fancies'
Berrington Hall is showcasing a series of costume exhibitions against the backdrop of its beautiful Georgian interiors. Costumes displays from the Charles Paget Wade collection, the Janet Arnold Prize winner and the BBC’s Pride & Prejudice will be on display at different times of the year throughout 2014. Plus come and dress up like a Georgian; try on their extreme fashions and ask yourself 'Does my bum look big in this?'
Daily from 1 November to 23 December
A newly added exhibition, 'Classical Cool' is part of our year of 'A thousand fancies' costume displays. Step inside the Regency wardrobe with exquisite costumes and accessories from the Charles Paget Wade collection on display. The costumes from the collection are cared for at Berrington and can be seen when you visit the hall during opening hours.

As part of our 'a thousand fancies' programme, the mannered mob bring to life a Georgian Christmas at Berrington. 18th-century Christmas cooking and a Georgian feast, children's crafts, sewing and family traditions from the fanciful food era. Inside the house children can pay a visit to Father Christmas for an early Christmas gift but only if they've been good.
