Bucks History Festival 2020

Very excited and honoured to be part of the upcoming Bucks History Festival, 12th-13th September 2020.  Having grown up in Buckinghamshire, I know the county well. My podcast covers some basic questions about smocks including:

  • Who wore smocks?
  • What are they made of?
  • When did people start wearing them?
  • What colours are they?

It also looks at some specific examples in the context of Buckinghamshire, including the wonderful collection of photographs of prisoners from the 1870s, some of whom also wore smocks.
