In 2017 a trove of historical costume was discovered in the Gorhambury attics and Poppy has been responsible for advising on its conservation and storage. A selection of these garments will be on public view for the first time during the talk, when Poppy will speak about the pieces as well as the challenges of caring for a costume collection. Visitors are also invited to bring in textiles from home and, after her talk, Poppy will be happy to answer any questions they may have about their conservation.
