This exhibition will look at the history of Trentham Gardens from 1906, when they were first opened to the public, to 1996 when St Modwen Plc bought the Trentham Estate. The items on display, including postcards, posters, advertising leaflets, programmes, diaries, ceramics etc., have come from public collections, private collectors and from people who formerly worked in Trentham Gardens. These will illustrate how the gardens changed as a result of the construction of new facilities particularly in the 1930’s and 1960’s in response to changes in British society during this period.
