Seniors Open Day 2015 – A Report

30th March 2015 Jacob Moss1,320 views

On Monday 23 March 2015, The Fan Museum opened its doors for a special event aimed at audiences aged 55+.

The day was well-attended by visitors from the local boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham who enjoyed a variety of free taster activities such as fan making, short talks and refreshments.  The project, a Museum of London grant-funded initiative, gained much from the support of Lewisham Pensioners Forum. Thank you to everyone, including our lovely volunteers, who turned out and made the day such a memorable occasion.

An illustrated lecture by Mrs H. E. Alexander, MBE

Based upon an account of a feather business which started in 1812 and celebrated its centenary in 1912, this talk gives a light-hearted overview of some of the more popular birds, their plumes and, of course, the fans which were fashioned from them.
