An exhibition of fans celebrating the theatricality of love, life and death.

The exhibition comprises an intriguing selection of fans which commemorate births, marriages and deaths.

Covering a period of over 300 years – from the seventeenth century onward - the exhibition reveals how fans recorded not only joyous occasions of national significance such as royal births and weddings but those of a darker, melancholic nature, too.
