The Celebrated Garden Parties of Fulham Palace

  • Fulham Palace Bishops Avenue, Fulham London United Kingdom (map)

Join Curator, Miranda Poliakoff for this  fascinating illustrated talk about the famous Palace garden parties, followed by a topic-appropriate glass of wine and stroll around the lawns.

Established in the 1850s by Catharine, wife of Bishop Tait, the tradition of the Fulham Palace Garden Party began with a modest 1,000 guests. By the early 1900s, they had become a recognised feature of the London season; with up to 5000 descending upon the Palace lawns to mingle in their finery.

In this illuminating talk, Miranda delves into the variety of weird and wonderful occasions and their colourful guests; from the 1000 maids of London invited to tea to a collection of aged governesses, and the cream of London society!
