The Roaring Twenties

Join us as we turn back the clocks and relive the 'Roaring Twenties', with live music, original ‘bootleg’ cocktails, Hor D'oeuvres and a fabulous three-course dinner.


Thorpeness is an original holiday destination, attracting people to the Suffolk coast throughout the decades. Built in 1912, our Country Club, set in a stunning location overlooking the sea, has been hosting events and welcoming people through its doors ever since, from weddings and birthdays to dinner dances, and of course, parties.

In the words of Catherine from blockbuster movie and classic novel, The Great Gatsby, “Ain’t we havin’ a party?” In true 1920s fashion and in homage to the rip-roaring decade, the Country Club here at Thorpeness will play host to our very own Speakeasy Ball this September!

The 1920s had it all; the birth of a new era of music and popular culture, political and sociological movements, prohibition in the United States, the foundation of the National Football League here in Britain, the arrival of the bob haircut and for many, economic prosperity.

Join us as we turn back the clocks and relive the 'Roaring Twenties', with live music, original ‘bootleg’ cocktails, Hor D'oeuvres and a fabulous three-course dinner. Guests will of course be encouraged to don their finest 1920s attire, be it a flapper girl or American gangster, with prizes up for grabs for the best dressed.

Arrive at 7pm for an authentic glass of Gin Rickey, prohibition style, as we get set to party the night away with live music from king of swing, Gary Grace. A fantastic evening awaits, with true Great Gatsby flair!
