Come and celebrate our Centenary Weekend in style!
Gents sort some spats and ladies find a flapper dress because the roaring ‘20s are making a colourful return to Compton Acres!
The historic gardens, which marks its 100th anniversary this year, is hosting a centenary weekend in April with four days of vintage-themed celebrations, including afternoon tea on Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Monday 20th April, while on Sunday there will be a special lunch accompanied by a live jazz singer. The tearooms and their staff will be dressed in the 1920s style, and guests are invited to do the same – with prizes for the best outfits. So why not step back into the golden age of jazz and celebrate with us!
Spaces need to be booked in advance so if you’d like to attend please get in touch on 01202 700 778.
