Celebrating the community's heritage, you'll be reliving a significant and iconic period of time that spanned from the 1920s through to the late 1940s. The roaring twenties was a period of economic prosperity and growth for the middle class. Women's rights grew following their indispensable contribution to the war effort. Celebrities, movie stars and sporting heroes attained unprecedented fame. Cars, lighting, radio broadcasts and more became commonplace. It was the end of the war and the beginning of a housing boom and the 1920s townscape character from this time can still be recognised in the area today. Immerse yourself in a fantastic fun day that harks back and gives a nod to the past.
