Jazz hands at Market Hall in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 24th Nov, 2022   0

BUDDING dancers can have a go at the Charleston and all that jazz in Warwick.

The Market Hall Museum has a new exhibition – 1920s The Age of Jazz – which includes a Charleston dance mat where Strictly-inspired visitors can try out their own moves.

And for further help they can watch vintage film showing people doing the Charleston as well as footage of legendary 20s dancer Josephine Baker strutting her stuff.

It is one of three new exhibitions at the museum with Warwickshire connections.

Life on the Land uncovers the hidden stories of the people who lived and worked in rural Warwickshire during the last 200 years. The display features a 19th century ‘Sunday best’ smock worn by a county farm worker and a 1950s radio and knife steel set.

The exhibition Our Commonwealth is a case study of Reuben Lynch, a resident of Bidford, who originally moved from Montserrat to the UK, as a child. It includes smells of Montserrat as chosen by Reuben which visitors are challenged to try and guess.
