The filming crew of BBC 2’s Antiques Road Trip stopped by the Museum today to glimpse at the life and works of George Eliot. Presenter and Antiques Expert Charlie Ross chatted to Museum & Arts Officer Catherine Nisbet about the local writer.
The Museum had the opportunity to show objects from the collection that highlight aspects of Eliot’s life and work. One of the most exciting items being shown is a silk dress that used to belong to the author. This dress is usually kept off display due to its fragile condition, but there is a replica on permanent display in the Museum’s George Eliot Gallery.
We are unsure when the feature will be aired, but watch this space and we shall keep you posted.
