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.
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.
Who is who
Gabrielle Rivers – 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.
Sue Chambers- Visitor Services Officer. She’ll make sure everyone’s visit runs smoothly and find you the oddest bits of information, as she’s in charge of our Tourist Information service.
Richard Studer – Visitor Services Assistant. Our latest team member, Richard is Artistic Director of Mid Wales Opera and joined us after the coronavirus pandemic left him unable to work in theatre for a while. A creative force and great fun to have with us.
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 now Keeper – Collection Servies for the National Museum Wales.
Other trustees are: Keith Slater, Alan Bathurst, Cllr. Beverley Baynham, Dr Charlotte Smith, Avriel Reader, Janet Denne.
…plus help from an incredible collection of local individuals who give their time and skills to keep our wonderful building going.
