Summer event: 1920s

As part of Festival Coast Live! we are hosting a series of fun-packed free garden events this August at the Russell-Cotes.

In the 1920s, Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes opened up their home as a museum and art gallery. In celebration, we are hosting a 1920s event. Join our relaxed garden party atmosphere, with music, dancing, crafts, and more. Make it a really special event by dressing up in 1920s style, or pre-book an Afternoon Tea on our Terrace, overlooking the sea.
