Celebrating 100 years of the 'Roaring 1920s'
With a century of history behind the ‘roaring 20s’, we’re revisiting one of modern history’s most explosive cultural and social growth periods.
The Age Of Prosperity
The early 1920s saw huge growth, as a time often remembered with North America emerging as a superpower during Europe’s turbulent rebuilding after World War 1.
During this time, we saw jazz take hold through the illicit speakeasies that gained in popularity due to the USA’s prohibition of alcohol sales. Jazz quickly became associated with the younger crowd who shied away from some of the older cultural values held by previous generations and who embraced improvisation.
This soon translated across to Europe, who combined elements of African-American jazz with symphonic styles and later, Eastern European Folk to create gypsy jazz.
Women were finally granted the right to vote, and with that came leaps in education, transportation and fashion. Women began to ‘bob’ their hair, dance and wear shorter, fancier dresses, leading to the rise of ‘flappers’.
Aviation opened the world up to intrepid travellers, and suddenly the world had become a much smaller place that allowed people to travel to different continents without the need for extensive boat journeys.
With all this innovation during this period, we have seen a particular fondness for the 20s that shows no signs of slowing down. This evergreen entertainment theme is perfect for throwing a party that embraces familiarity whilst adding a twist which makes it uniquely appealing.
Here are some of our handpicked entertainment options that we think are perfect for embracing the roaring 20s:
