A fitting summer send-off

Thanks to all who braved the temperatures and sloped along to our last party before we take a summer break. We had live music from the Lucky Dog Dance Band, who take their inspiration from the great dance bands of the late 1920s and early days of Hollywood. They are the house band of the Lucky Dog Picturehouse, which screens silent movies with live musical accompaniment—as they would have been enjoyed back when they were first seen. The name comes from the Laurel and Hardy classic 'The Lucky Dog', and on the night we projected a programme of classic shorts (including 'The Lucky Dog'), curated by the band.

Running the show, singing songs and keeping everyone in order was strict mistress of the Weimar cabaret, Eva Von Schnippisch, with vintage DJing from Baroness JoJo of the Bee’s Knees. There was a great vibe in the room and several people who had been to a number of our parties said it was the most enjoyable yet.

We’ll return with our back-to-school first party of the new season on 14th September—don’t forget to get your tickets, as at the time of writing there are just 40 left.
