The Last Curtsey: Etiquette and elocution, the life of a Debutante

From the mid 19th century young ladies of upper class wealthy families were presented at the Royal Court. Their ‘debut’ into society heralded their entrance into the adult world and search for a suitable husband. Young ladies were whisked through endless rounds of parties, afternoon teas, balls, regattas and other social occasions – all referred to as ‘The Season’. This long standing tradition changed in 1958 when the Queen stopped court presentations, leading to a slow demise and change for the world of a Debutante.

In this exhibition discover the reality behind the glittering parties and beautiful ball gowns. What did it take to make a good Debutante, and did everyone live up to the standard?



We need your support to keep the house and gardens open for the enjoyment of all.
