A celebration of 1920s music is taking place in Cardiff this Friday. The Cardiff Story Museum is getting into the swing, Great Gatsby style at The Roaring Twenties, an evening of jazz in the museum galleries. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Images of 1920s Cardiff will be on display as Cardiff University Big Band play music from the decade that brought us The Charleston, Lindy Hop and Black Bottom. It’s organised as part of the Museums at Night Festival and offers patrons the chance of exploring the galleries through a 1920s lens whilst enjoying a gin cocktail from the bar. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Cardiff Story Museum Manager, Victoria Rogers said: “We’re very excited about The Roaring Twenties event. Opening the museum after hours is a great way for us to reach new audiences who couldn’t normally visit during the day. And what better way to do it than with live music and a 1920’s theme. We’re encouraging people to get into the spirit of the evening and dress the part!” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Emma Coulthard, of Cardiff County and the Vale of Glamorgan Music Service said: “We’re really looking forward to performing at the Cardiff Story Museum in the Old Library. The venue holds a special place in my heart as my parents met there! The museum celebrates people’s stories and the history of the city and we’re thrilled to be taking part in this special event.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The event is to raise money to support the Museum’s learning and community outreach work. Tickets are on sale for £5 each. To reserve a ticket contact the museum on: 029 2034 6214 or (Mon – Fri) ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

There’s a lot to discover in the award-winning Cardiff Story Museum, open every day from 10am – 4pm. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
