Exclusive Group Viewings of the 2019 Bailiffgate Fashion Exhibition

Looking for something extra special for your club or group next year? 

The major summer exhibition at Bailiffgate Museum in 2019 will be "I Could Have Danced All Night", a celebration of fashion through time. From the elegance of Chanel's Little Black Dress to the edgy, exciting shoes of Vivien Westwood and Prada. It will run from Saturday 6th April to Sunday 8th September 2019.

The story begins with the flappers of the 20's, taking a quick step through the romance and heartbreak of World War Two and ends with the wild excesses of the 60's and 70's. See the work of fabulous designers including Balenciaga, Dior, Alexander McQueen and Galliano. 

We are offering exclusive group visits to the exhibition on Mondays-when the general public will be excluded. This will make an ideal trip to form the highlight of the year for your group or society. Your party will be welcomed and given information sheets to allow them to make the most of all the fashion exhibition exhibits. (They will also be able to view all the rest of the fascinating history of North Northumberland aranged on two further floors of the museum). Subject to availability, it is also possible to provide a talk on aspects of fashion for approximately 40 minutes as part of your visit, at an additional cost. Refreshments can also be available on a similar basis. 

Tour numbers can begin at 15 persons, but we can discuss arrangements for larger numbers as required.
