THE MARY GLENN MEMORIAL LECTURE

Lecturer: Jacob Moss

WE HOPE THAT THIS LECTURE CAN BE AN ATTENDED LECTURE AT GRANGE PARK HOTEL

IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE IT WILL BE A ZOOM LECTURE

Occupying a pair of early Georgian townhouses nestled in historic Greenwich, the story of how The Fan Museum came to fruition dovetails into the multifaceted history of the handheld fan. From an especially rare Elizabethan-period embroidered folding fan to contemporary examples decorated by street artists, discover some of the key objects within the Museum’s extraordinary collections which encompass more than 5,000 fans and related objects dating from the eleventh century to the present day and gathered from most parts of the world.
