Visit | Geffrye Museum
Thursday 10 September 2015 - 10:30 until 15:00
Set in elegant 18th century former almshouses, the Geffrye Museum explores the history of the home from 1600 to the present day. A series of period living rooms and gardens show how English middle-class homes have been used and furnished, reflecting changes in society, behaviour, style and taste over 400 years. The pre-lunch talk provides a social context for the decorative arts and explores the changing values of the urban middle classes as expressed in their homes. After lunch there will be an opportunity to enjoy the rooms and gardens that make the museum one of east London’s favourite hideaways.
Main course menu choices: Sausage and mash; Poached salmon fillet; Chicken and leek pie; Warm savoury tart (vegetarian)
Dessert: mini brownie and flapjack bites
