Cuckfield Museum: reopens on Feb 18th after its winter closure with a new display, ‘From Boots to Bustles – costume finds from Sussex Attics’, featuring items of costume which have been put away and kept by local families for sentimental reasons or because of their value. From a spectacular 1870’s blue watered silk bodice and skirt designed to be worn over a bustle to a delicate wisp of a 1920’s chiffon day dress, we look at the changing shape of women and the changes in their lives. Museum open Wed, Thurs and Fri 10-12.30pm and Sat 10-3pm. More information at www.cuckfieldmuseum.org’
