‘Pride, Prejudice and Peterborough’

Home  /  Events  /  ‘Pride, Prejudice and Peterborough'

The current Museum building, the grand townhouse of city magistrate Thomas Cooke, is 200 years old in 2016. What was Peterborough like at the time when that house was built?

This exhibition looks at the city during the Georgian period using original objects from the Museum’s collections, including rarely seen period costume. Find out what daily life was like here at the time of Jane Austen, some of the personalities and key events in the story of Peterborough at that time, and the fascinating story of how the modern provision of medical care in the city also started in 1816.

There is a programme of events to tie in with this exhibition, and an accompanying education programme.
