A touch of 1950s Americana is coming to Devon mansion Huntsham Court in October.

On 8 October the house will open its doors to guests offering the sounds and gourmet treats of the golden era of rock and roll.

Headlining the evening wil be the Beat Cats who will inject the swing, raising the roof with a playlist influenced by the greatest names of the time, inspired by Buddy, Elvis, Gene and Chuck fused with the Stray Cats and a dressing of Imelda May.

Providing authentic American deli food, Huntsham Court will be inviting Dan’s American Kitchen to satiate the taste buds of its honourary Teddy Boys and Girls. Throughout the night a casual menu of traditional deli food, from the Americana street food experts, will be served in the Great Hall, from tex mex, creole to smoked meats accompanied by sides of slaw and fries.

With sounds and savouries sorted, the cocktail menu will put the ‘rock’ in the ‘roll’ mixing up a retro fusion of classics from martinis to Tom Collins and a taste of kitsch with Grasshoppers and a Mai Tai or two.

As no diner experience would be complete without a shake, Dan’s will also ensure that junior guests and rollers with a sweet tooth are re-fuelled with a decadent selection of milkshakes.

Tickets for Huntsham’s American Diner are on sale now at £24 per adult and £15 for juniors aged 11-18. Must be booked in advance. For further information and to book contact: supperclub@huntshamcourt.co.uk
