A Victorian Gallery…

We had two brilliant days before the half term break. For two days we dressed up as if we were in Victorian times. One day was spent at school and included a Victorian-style lunch (in silence but we were allowed more than simply bread and water!). The other day was spent at Wisbech Castle when we were apprentice boot boys and scullery maids. Our tasks included laying a table for a ‘light’ four course lunch, folding a napkin into a crown, making and decorating a pie crust, identifying genuine Victorian objects and doing the washing with a posser, washboard and mangle. We also got to play with Victorian games and toys at lunchtime – something that servants would not normally be able to do. We hope you enjoy the photographs!
