Fabulous Fifties!

Celebrate the decade when the Queen was crowned at our Fabulous Fifties event!

Come dressed fit for a Queen 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.

Bunting and flags will be flying, staff will look the part, and music will be playing as the Castle comes alive with the celebration of the Jubilee.

Inside the museum you can handle some items from the decade and swoon over beautiful 1950s dresses in our new costume gallery. Visit 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 can get hands-on with Coronation Crafts by constructing and decorating their own miniature, wooden Queen’s carriage and royal sceptre, and will have fun exploring the Castle as they follow the Jubilee trail around site.
