The 'Back in time' Breakfast


A chance finding in the attic changed Zack Pinsent’s life and inspired his business.


Zack was just 14 when, as his family packed up to move house, he discovered his great grandfather’s 1920s three piece suit in the loft. Fascinated, he began to find out more about the fashion of the past and was so inspired by it that he started to dress in late Victorian-style.


So it was a natural step, to start making his own. Invited to a Regency Ball, he looked in despair at his not-quite-the-right-period Victorian wardrobe and decided there was nothing for it but to make his own outfit. 


Today, Zack now runs his own bespoke period tailoring business, crafting clothing from 1660s-1940s using historical materials and methods. His creations have also appeared on BBC1’s My Friend Jane, a documentary about Jane Austen fans.


So grab your top hat and come join us at our first breakfast of 2019, as we mark the new year and celebrate the past.


Tickets are on sale from Friday 14 December.
