Coming soon at the Wallace Collection …

Until 16th September the Wallace Collection in London (worth visiting in its own right by the way) has an exhibition entitled “The Noble Art of the Sword” covering the rapier as weapon, jewellery and fashion accessory. With items brought in from all over Europe this really is a superb exhibition.

Additionally there are “Swordplay Saturdays” (with workshops, demonstrations, talks & lectures and a ‘Swashbuckling film’ ) on 7th July, 11th August, 15th September and a Study Day of “The Sword in Shakespeare’s London” on 14th September. 

Swordplay Saturdays are FREE (as is entrance to the Wallace Collection) although a donation of £2 is requested), the Study day is £35,
