Playing by the rules: fashion exhibition in the house

Killerton's 2024 fashion exhibition will explore children's clothes of the 19th and 20th century.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

'Playing by the rules: Childhood, dress and imagination' will delve into the world of children's clothing within the Killerton collection, many of them part of the Margaret Bodley collection which was acquired by the National Trust in the early 1980s.

Five local Brownie and Guide units have worked with us to create future fashion designs, along with becoming young curators for one of the displays.

Opening 10 February 2024, the exhibition will open with the house, daily 11am to 4pm (last entry 3.30pm).
