Two Last Nights! Show Business in Georgian Britain

Displayed throughout the Museum, this interactive exhibition will delve into the mechanics of theatre and concert going in eighteenth and nineteenth century Britain.

With more than 100 objects on display, discover the surprising similarities and astonishing differences between theatre and festival-going then and now, including advertising, ticket sales, audience behaviour and dress code.

The exhibition also covers how historically noted artists such as Hogarth, Hayman and Lambert, crossed over into the world of show business as set designers and scenery painters.
