This is a totally different dining experience. These evening themed dinners are held only a few times a year as they are run by an acting company in a large mansion. You are greeted (in your best 1920s outfit) with champagne and nibbles before dinner....More
Situated at the end of a long gravel driveway near Winchelsea sits Barwon Park. I've visited the mansion several times over the years and each time l visit its an enjoyable journey.

Barwon Park mansion is a perfect backdrop. Can't wait to return after the exhibition finishes to see it fully furnished in Victorian splendour.
