Fashion of the swinging 60s at Sudbury

A 1960s fashion show will mark the 50th anniversary of Sudbury Hall becoming part of the National Trust.
On the 9th and 10th June, Sudbury is teaming up with the  Hope House Costume Museum to showcase iconic 1960s fashion pieces in the Hall’s stunning long gallery.
Guests will be able to sit back and relax with a glass of bubbly and see the models strut their stuff.
Kirstie Filby, visitor experience manager at Sudbury Hall said: “So much has changed here at Sudbury Hall over the last 50 years, from large restoration projects to ongoing conservation, it’s amazing how far we have come.
“The fashion show is a fun way of looking back at a time which was not just a time of huge social changes in the UK but also a time of change and upheaval here at Sudbury.
“Hopefully it will help people rekindle fond memories of times gone by or get some creative inspiration.”
Hope House’s extensive collection of costumes is thanks to Notty Hornblower who has been collecting vintage textiles and costumes since the 1970s.
Over the years she has amassed over 1,000 pieces which are all carefully catalogued each with its own unique story.
Within this collection Notty has an interesting selection of pieces from the swinging sixties which she will be sharing with our guests.
Tickets can now be bought online at:  or by calling 0344 249 1895.
