Life changed after the First World War with the decline of high living for the wealthy as the supply of servants dramatically dropped. Cultural life took on a particular aspect reflected in architecture, design, fashion, music, literature, cinema and distinctive styles of Art Deco and Modernism. Further changes altered everyday living and perceptions, especially how women viewed their role, although little was being done to change their status even though they had contributed so greatly to the war effort and workforce.

13 Brunswick Square, Hove, BN3 1EH
A really exciting and unique event:
You will be welcomed with hot chocolate (or coffee) and plum cake in the kitchen followed by discussion on servant duties and then on to the basement of no. 10 Brunswick Square which is a time capsule, having been left undisturbed for many years, where you will enjoy a guided tour. Regency inspired lunch back at the Town House will be followed by an illustrated talk in the small servant hall on daily life for the wealthy who lived in the main part of the house - which we will then tour. Discussion, questions and answer session with afternoon tea and cake ends our pleasant day.
