Being Gorgeous Georgians for a day

Our Parkhead regulars have had a ‘horrible’ time at their latest Zoom session – and enjoyed every minute of it.

Their Horrible Histories Zoom get-together took a look back at the Georgina period, with everyone taking it in turns to become one of the dubious characters around at the time – from Dick Turpin and Blackbeard to the wigged and powdered gentry.

“We all found the Georgian era fascinating,” said Parkhead manager, Claire. “Everything looks pretty, powdered and pristine on the surface yet wigs were alive with bugs, hygiene was very questionable and the food was truly awful.”

Everyone had so much fun taking on their role, but agreed it was great to leave all things Georgian behind at the end of the session.
