Welcome to the Jazz Age Club

I have had a passion about the Jazz Age of the 1920s and 1930s for a long time, especially anything relating to film, stage, cabaret, fashion and art. But, I have found that although there is a wealth of information about this period online, there is no general portal that encompasses all aspects of the period. I also want to introduce new topics and views not explored elsewhere to bring the period alive in a more diverse way instead of just focusing on the usual suspects such as Al Capone, Fitzgerald, the Bright Young Things and fancy dress parties. Although my main focus is about art, culture and entertainment, this website is designed to become a central resource and open forum for all news, views, reviews and stories about anything relating to the period of the 20s and 30s but in reality will span 1900-1940 which can loosely be described as the Jazz Age. It will also be international in flavour covering both American and European subjects. All pages/posts are arranged thematically by subject in the headings in the navigation bar at the top of the page. If you would like to contribute a piece for these pages please contact me.
