Join us online as we explore Victorian mourning rituals and the fashions that made the practice so morbidly fascinating.
What constituted the idea of the “Good Death”? How long were you expected to wear black? And what are some popular Victorian symbols you can look for within Brompton Cemetery?
“The Good Death: Victorian Mourning in Brompton Cemetery” will shed light on the dark topic that was funerary practice in the 19th century as we uncover the answers to these questions and much more.
This event will be led by Claire Harris, The Royal Parks' Partnership and Community Engagement Officer for Brompton Cemetery; and Victorianophile Katie Hinchliffe, who is a guide at the Emery Walker House in Hammersmith and has lectured on the V&A's Learning Academy adult courses. She has a keen interest in operatic performance and Victorian social history.
This event will take place on Microsoft Teams - you will be sent a link to the event once you sign up.
