Course aims and areas

We study social conditions, including suffragettes; domestic and working life for all classes in town and country; the arts, literature, fashion, travel, leisure, holidays and early cinema. The summer season’s giddy whirl for women of fashion was in sharp contrast to poor wives and mothers trying to keep a decent home and the family fed. Includes house tours.

Illustrated with PowerPoint, books, prints, paintings and texts.

Why the MET?

Please note this course is delivered at Preston Manor.

This historic house, at the end of Preston Park, decorated in Edwardian style and with rooms on four floors, is a delightfully unique and hugely atmospheric setting for studying. The tutor is also a house guide and lecturer.

Car parking is outside the house on the driveway and is free. Bus stops are nearby and Preston Park railway station is a short walk away.
