Finding the Fifties

06 June 2020

Join us for a night of 1950s themed fun as we move into the era when people “never had it so good”.

For one night only, we’re going to shake, rattle and roll our way into the rockin’ 1950s for an evening of live music, food and fashion to give you a flavour of mid-century life in the Black Country. 

In a special night celebrating 1950s food, music and fashion, you’ll experience a flavour of what’s to come at the Museum as part of our BCLM: Forging Ahead development, which over the next two years will see us build a 1940s-60s town and industrial area, bringing the Museum’s story forward in time. We’ll have live vintage music bringing you the hits of the day, so put on your best dancing shoes and jive the night away with plenty to get your toes tapping! Plus, explore the fashions of the day and even enjoy a taste of the 50s too with a variety of themed foods.

Explore the Museum’s historic streets as we bring to life Britain’s flourishing post-war era. This was a transformative time in British history – seeing the end of rationing, the birth of the NHS and a host of new technologies. See real social issues from the Black Country that impacted families in the 50s brought to life with our immersive street theatre – get up close and discover what life was like across the Black Country as some of the biggest changes the UK had experienced in decades began.

Event time: 6:30pm - 10pm
