A new exhibition will open on Thursday at 4pm, at the Storiel Museum, Bangor, displaying Queen Victoria’s clothing as well as textiles and other items from the period.

Museum staff will be on hand to provide more information to visitors about the black dress worn by Queen Victoria in the late 19th century, as well as her chemise, cuffs, hat and one for her infant’s dresses (pictured). Also on display will be a wedding dress from the Victorian period, jewellery and accessories, shoes and paisley shawls.

The ‘Victoria in Storiel’ exhibition coincides with the Four Nations History Festival being held at Bangor University from 25 to 26 October, and specifically with the theme of a talk which will be given by the historian Lucy Worsley as part of the History Festival.

Cllr Edgar Owen, Gwynedd Council chairman, will be opening the exhibition.
