Free exhibition: now closed

Our recent exhibition enabled visitors to step into the world of 1920s Britain and experience what life was really like, beyond the ‘Roaring Twenties’ that you may have heard about. Features included a diverse collection of documents and stories drawing on international peace treaties, textile samples, lonely hearts adverts and much more. There was also the opportunity to step into a recreation of a nightclub – the infamous 43 Club in Soho – with all the grit, glamour and associated sights and sounds.

Find out more, including our curators’ highlights tour of the exhibition.
