This major exhibition will explore Carlisle's development during the Georgian period (1714 - 1836) and analyse a period of immense social change that transformed Carlisle from a medieval to a modern city.
Visitors will also be able to see the national context of a period that brought the industrial revolution and growth of the British Empire. The display will contain a range of artefacts and primary documents from the Georgian era.
Collections on show will include the portraiture of influential period characters including Dr John Heysham, Margery Jackson and Robert Anderson. A model will also represent how Carlisle looked in 1746. The iconic diamond ring of Charles Edward Stuart can be seen along with a series of period costume demonstrating Georgian style and splendour.
Carlisle's Georgian architectural heritage will also be analysed in the exhibition.
