Roaring twenties

Dress up for the roaring 20s at Lyme Park

Learn to dance the Charleston, make a cocktail or step out in a costume from the 1920s… just some of the things you can do this winter at Lyme Park. The exhibition theme is the result of Lyme's role as The Big House in the recent BBC TV drama series, ‘The Village’ which was set in the 1920s. Go on, take a trip to the roaring twenties...
