Roaring 20s event in Cleethorpes
Make a date for your diary and enter the Roaring 20s at an event organised by the Friends of Cleethorpes Heritage.
The event on, Sunday, Novmber 18 will start at 10am, at the Cleethorpes Memorial Hall and conjures up such images of The Charleston, Flappers, Shimmy, the Cake Walk and the Black Bottom!
The 1920s saw an era enjoying, for the first time, cars, telephones, motion pictures, and electricity.
When the First World War ended women became more empowered, it is said that girls "parked" their corsets when they went dancing. They replaced their pantaloons and corsets for underwear called "step-ins."
Flappers, as they were known, tightly wound their chests with strips of cloth in order to flatten it. The waists of their clothes were dropped to the hipline and they wore stockings made of rayon.
The Friends of Cleethorpes Heritage group really put on good historical events, bringing to life long-gone eras in a fascinating and entertaining way, which quite often involves tea and cakes!
The event is free with a full programme of photos, information, music and activities throughout the day. Refreshments will be available and the Friends of Cleethorpes Heritage will be dressed 'up to the nines' in the fashion of the day.
