Fairfax House's major summer exhibition will look at the social scene in English towns and cities including London, delving into the tempting array of decadent activities and pleasurable pursuits catering for all tastes and predilections, sometimes challenging the notions of what ‘polite' entertainment encompassed in the eighteenth century.
From the pursuit of intimate pleasures to the raucous bedlam of the theatre, The Weird & The Wonderful opens a window onto the outrageous and sometimes shocking behaviour of ‘polite society' – conducted in the name of entertainment.
