Thursday, 23rd August 2018
Talk: Sighing for a Soldier: the lure of the scarlet coattee
Venue: The Green Howards Museum
Time: 7pm - 8pm
In this talk, the Museum’s Director, Lynda Powell looks at the pleasures, opportunities and pitfalls of life in the North York Militia.

“She saw all the glories of the camp; its tents stretched forth in beauteous uniformity of lines, crowded with the young and gay, and dazzling with scarlet; and to complete the view, she saw herself seated beneath a tent, tenderly flirting with at least six officers at once.” Jane Austen’s description of Lydia Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice’

The attentions of the local female population were just one of the attractions on offer to men serving with the North York Militia in the 1800s.

This Museum Talk is part of Richmond’s GeorgeFest18 programme.

Price: £5
