The Candlelight Club's May Ball

May 12 2018 19:00 - May 13 2018 00:00

A secret east London ballroom (The Candlelight Club), somewhere in east, E10 London

Relive the romance of the Jazz Age at the Candlelight Club’s special 1920s ball, in a long-forgotten, candlelit hall in east London where a host of flappers and Bright Young Things will frolic in two rooms of entertainment.

In the Ballroom get ready to glide and shimmy to live music from Candlelight favourites the Swing’It Dixeband. Dancing along to the band will be Charleston dance troupe the Gatsby Girls, showing you how it’s done. When the band aren’t playing DJ Holly from the Bee’s Knees will be spinning vintage platters into the night.

There is also a three-course dinner menu to preorder, or the option to reserve tables with Champagne and optional sharing platters, plus a menu of bar snacks to order on the night.

Meanwhile in the Cabaret Lounge there will be another bar with more live music in the early evening from the Volstead Orchestra, followed by two variety shows hosted by the lord of cabaret misrule Champagne Charlie, featuring Art Deco burlesque from Miss Betsy Rose, angelic foot-juggling from Weimar wunderkind Ulrike Storch and logic-defying sorcery from master magician and mind-reader Neil Kelso.

And if stepping into the past is not enough for you our fortune tellers Foxglove and Lucius will be on hand to peer into your future as well.

Guests receive an email a few days before the event revealing the secret location.
