Changing Rooms is an online talk that takes a special look behind the scenes at the restoration of Elizabeth Gaskell’s bedroom and how it was brought back to its former glory. Join Jane Baxter to discover how letters and novels were used alongside historical evidence to transform the room, from its layout to Victorian chintz patterns and favourite styles.

This intriguing talk explores the process of restoration and how the team showcased something of the private life of the woman behind classic novels such as North and South.

The talk will be approx 45 mins long, with time for a short question session afterwards
