Visit to the Wallace Collection
This year the traditional Bank Holiday picnic
will be substituted with the visit to
the Wallace Collection which is holding a cutting
edge exhibition of Fashion
and Fencing in Renaissance Europe. The
exhibition presents some of the most outstanding
rapiers, daggers, costumes and treatises on
fencing. Still it fills in just two rooms, so
fencer's legs would not get too tired during the
visit. The rapiers will be immediately followed by
the afternoon tea at the Collection Restaurant.
We're going to have a guided tour while looking
at the rapiers. The tour is free for the members
of the Club, however the number of places is
limited, so if you're planning to take part RSVP
at your earliest convenience.
Date and time:
Monday, 27 August 2012, 2 pm. Tea at 3.15 pm.
Meet at the foyer of The
Wallace Collection, Hertford House,
Manchester Square, London, W1U 3BN.
