Fancy-dress makes a comeback for grown ups

Words by Abi Scaife

English Heritage is encouraging grown-ups to dress up.

Fun! But why?

It’s all about the power of imagination! Research has shown that our imagination actually grows richer as we get older.

Let’s be honest, getting dressed up is fun - especially when you’re visiting a castle or historical building and getting to relive that princesses and pirates vibe of your childhood. 

That’s why English Heritage are so keen to get adults dressing up, as they think it will help them get even more out of their visit - and of course, bring a few smiles to their faces!

Would you dress up? Let us know on Twitter!
