1950s Day Out
We're so excited about our new 1950s Days Out at Basildon Park! This fantastic National Trust country mansion is a great venue for 1950s themed hen parties, birthday treats, or just special days out for glamorous grown ups!
Mixed male and female groups can take part too! So what are we waiting for? Let's rock and roll!
How it works:
Have a private Champagne afternoon tea served on vintage china, followed by any combination of the following activities:
- Rock n roll dance class
- 1950s style mini-makeovers (hair and make up)
- 1950s Photoshoot
- Photoshoot Extra - pose with a 1950s BMW or a 1940s racing car!
Each package includes entrance to the house and grounds during opening hours, including a visit to the fantastic 1950s kitchen! All activities take place in a wonderful charismatic room, with panoramic views of parkland. Add lawn games in fair weather!
Private Champagne Afternoon Tea in the Summer Pavillion:
Relax and chat over sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, cakes, tea, and a glass of Champagne, to a 1950s soundtrack!
Rock n Roll Dance Class:
Rock n roll, and learn to stroll! Great fun for mixed and same-sex groups alike, and all levels of ability.
Be pampered during your afternoon tea, and get the 1950s look, with our professional vintage hair and make up artists. Quiffs, hot rollered curls, victory rolls, or classic eyes and lips.
1950s Photoshoot (with optional vintage car hire!)
Our photoshoot is great fun and includes a portable professional studio set up, props and fabulous dressing up accessories, and your photos sent to you on CD in high res after the event. Add the hire of a 1950s BMW or 1940s racing car for an extra charismatic shoot. We bring along voguish 1950s shots for inspiration, or pin up style poses if you wish!
