The name given to the tight trousers worn by some Regency gentlemen, such as the notorious Beau Brummell and his ‘dandy’ followers, as they showed off their leg muscles.
Who is who
The Judge’s Lodging is a charitable trust, run by a small team of dedicated staff and trustees, with a wonderfully enthusiastic and committed volunteer force.
Gabrielle Rivers – Museum Development Manager. Your main point of contact if you want to chat about anything. She formed part of the restoration team in the 1990s and has been caring for the building since it opened its doors to the public in 1997.
Dave Frazer – Museum Technician. He’s the absolute whizz on period lighting and information about the furnishings. Dave has also been with the building since it opened as a museum, so is a real source of knowledge.
Zack Foreman – Visitor Services Assistant. Zack works with us during our open season. He joined the team during the odd times of the pandemic and was instrumental in helping us maintain a safe and friendly environment. We’re so delighted he has stayed with us into less complicated times! He’ll greet you on the front desk, sort you out with our audioguides and show you where everything is, so you have the best visit possible. Being the youngest staff member, he also keeps the rest of us oldies on the straight and narrow when it comes to technology!
Laura Shepherd – Visitor Services Assistant. Laura is our latest member of staff, joining the team of years of visiting us and enjoying the building. She will greet you at the front desk with a smile, happily chat to you about the area and help you make the most of your visit to us. She’s takes a mean photograph too and is often looking for fun things to share on our social media.
Diane Gwilt – Chair of the Trustees. Diane’s interest in the building goes right back to its restoration, when she worked in a team from National Museum Wales choosing furnishings to come on loan to the building, replacing original furnishings we know had been lost over the years the building was in use. She is Keeper – Collection Servies for the National Museum Wales.
Other trustees are: Alan Bathurst, Dr Charlotte Smith, Colin Felgate, Tim Hodgetts.
…plus help from an incredible collection of local individuals who give their time and skills to keep our wonderful building going.
