Burlesque dancers will be part of a National Trust vintage themed event in the hope they will attract new visitors.
The charity said the dancers would be showing off their corsets, feathers and pearls at Killerton House, near Exeter, at the end of June.
It added the event was about showing off the costume collection and it would not be a strip show or "sleazy" weekend.
