A study of peculiar guests who arrive to stay at The Mad Manor. We see disparate social worlds collide: ethereal dames, posh aristocrats, counter-culture icons, rockers and royals run shoulders with one another. Each dressed with peculiar aplomb, this season we explore all the eccentric characters so intrinsic to the English narrative.

DROP 1B: MAD MANOR
Delusions and illusions grace the wild gardens of the Mad Manor. A bygone playhouse for all kinds of wicked princes and princesses, where elaborate excess is the theme de jour. Shaking loose the restraints of official ceremonies and polite exchanges, the royals are rebelling, and the rumours are running rife. Aristocratic anarchy, it’s the poshest kind of trouble.
DROP 2: MAD MANOR
Well-to-do vagabonds walk the soaring estate on an endless adventure. These stuffy academics are kept amused by debating and provoking one another, always with a twinkle in their eye. They take lunch together, a feast of cucumber sandwiches, brandy and tea. As the day goes on, they get a little rowdier, heatedly discussing the wiles of the world and singing prose of yore!
DROP 3: MAD MANOR
Portraits line the walls of the tea room, rich with peculiar antiques and lovelorn literature. The crochet covered table holds stacks upon stacks of precious pottery. Dressed in the prettiest finery, the ladies whisper amongst themselves, each story is more indecent than the last. As the giggles escalate, one must wonder: just what is it exactly in that tea?
DROP 4: ROCK ROYALTY
Defiant and darling; restless and foolish; beautiful and brilliant, meet monarchy of music. This social set emerges only after hours; rockers, actors, models and fabulous it girl. They descend upon the grounds causing the type of mayhem that may just well end up in the morning’s tabloids.
DROP 6: HULLICINATE HEIRESS
The overgrown greenhouse is where the horticultural heiresses of the Mad Manor retreat. Potting amongst their beloved plants, they watch as a patchwork of psychedelic bubbles float through the sticky air. Chances are, a few of these heiresses are hallucinating, lost in a technicolour trance.
