Flappers, Vamps & All That Jazz: The Roaring Twenties

Fri 8 Apr 2016 @ 17:00 - Sun 10 Apr 2016 @ 14:00

£304.00

The 1920s were a time of great upheaval, as society was torn between a desire to return to the certainties of the past and rejection of the old certainties of the Edwardian era. The result was a creative tension that led to new developments in society, politics and the arts, including daring new plays, modern poetry, jazz, the golden age of detective fiction and the stories of P. G. Wodehouse. We shall explore the events, ideas and politics of this racy decade, making use of the literature and music of the period. All-comers welcome.
