Fabulous Fifties

Hartlebury Castle
Hartlebury nr Kidderminster, Worcestershire DY11 7XZ United Kingdom

2nd - 2nd June 2022

£6.50 – £11.50

Celebrate the decade when the Queen first came to the throne at our Fabulous Fifties event. Come dressed up in your best 1950s gear and join us for a sing and dance with the fantastic Bluebird Belles who will be performing songs from the period in the Castle’s magnificent carriage circle. There will be flags and bunting everywhere and staff will also join in the fun and dress up, so you won’t be on your own!

Inside the museum you can handle some items from the decade and swoon over beautiful 1950s dresses in our new costume gallery before visiting our Lavish Living exhibition which explores what Worcestershire was like in the 1950s, and see it decorated just as many homes would have been for the Queen’s coronation in 1952.
Children will have fun following the Jubilee Family Trail around the Castle and can get hands-on with coronation crafts including making and decorating a royal carriage and a Queen’s sceptre to take home. An additional fee of £2.50 applies for craft activitites.
