Eskbank House’s 1920s Garden Party a Roaring Success

Visitors to the Eskbank House Garden Party on Sunday 15 February enjoyed a fabulous program of entertainment, outdoor sport and high tea recreating the sumptuous garden parties of the 1920s.

“Congratulations to the team at Eskbank House on a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham. “Wonderful events like this provide a fresh experience for locals and visitors alike showcasing the beauty and heritage of our area.”

The afternoon showed off the high calibre events the team at Eskbank House and Museum can provide. With all catering, entertainment and decorations sourced locally, the event was truly a Lithgow affair.

The Juzt Jazz Duo played throughout the afternoon with a combination of music that had people relaxing, dancing and singing along. Lithgow Living History, in well researched costumes, re-enacted a “tea party with the Mortlocks” in the museum rooms and led a tour around the grounds telling the history of the property. The Lithgow Croquet Club was a big hit giving lessons and getting young and old involved. Local boutique Bellisimo’s floral centre pieces lit up the table and were the perfect accompaniment to the scrumptious high tea provided by the Ladies of the Vale.

“Eskbank House is an ideal location for events,” said Mayor Statham.” I would encourage anyone looking for a beautiful spot for a birthday, anniversary celebration or even a wedding to talk to the staff at Eskbank House. I know they will make your day as special as ours has been today.”
Providing a range of programs celebrating the cultural diversity and rich heritage of our local government area is part of Council’s Caring for our Community strategies in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
