At Home with the Georgians

Fairfax House

Have you ever wondered how Georgian ladies managed to spend a penny with all those layers of skirts to contend with or why there was a roaring trade in pauper’s teeth in the 18th century?

Visitors to Fairfax House, York this weekend (Saturday 12-Sunday 13 August) will have the chance to find out - getting up close and personal with a host of Georgian characters at a family-friendly, two-day celebration.

Fairfax House the finest Georgian townhouse in England, will play host to The Mannered Mob, a society of historical re-enactors who dress in authentic costume and bring Georgian society to life – from the surgeon to the cook - warts and all.

Passionate about sharing their knowledge and understanding of Georgian society, ‘At Home with the Georgians’ will give visitors the opportunity to quiz the characters face-to-face about subjects including personal hygiene – which was of a very different standard from that which is expected today.
