What Shall I Wear: Eveningwear through the ages
Explore Lotherton’s latest fashion exhibition, What Shall I Wear. The return of eveningwear marks a positive and welcome step towards enjoying life at its most fabulous. This year, the fashion galleries at Lotherton will showcase the changing styles, rules and occasions associated with eveningwear and what we consider it to be today. Pieces on display will showcase traditional and opulent styles, as well as daring and eccentric formal wear, which all celebrate the theatre of dressing up after dusk. Highlights include dresses from John Bates (Jean Varon), Zandra Rhodes, Balenciaga and Norman Hartnell. A key focus of this exhibition also includes a section on re-wearing and will include a film with contemporary views on eveningwear from people of Leeds.

Zog and the Flying Doctors
The roar-some crew are back for a new adventure. Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a crash-bang-thump. Together with his Flying Doctor crew, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout, they tend to a sunburnt mermaid, a unicorn with one too many horns and a lion with the flu. However, Pearl’s uncle, the King, has other ideas about whether princesses should be doctors, and she’s soon locked up in the castle back in a crown and a silly frilly dress! See website for times. With a bit of help from some friends and half a pound of cheese, can Pearl make her uncle better and prove princesses can be doctors too?
