May Ball

  • The Candlelight Club Somewhere in east London United Kingdom (map)

Saturday 12th May

Celebrate spring in style at a special event in a grand, long-forgotten venue in east London, featuring two rooms of entertainment: in the Ballroom there will be dancing to live jazz from the Swing'It Dixieband and DJ Holly from the Bee's Knees, Charleston routines from those happy-footed flappers the Gatsby Girls, plus dinner options and tables that can be reserved as usual. Meanwhile in the intimate Cabaret Lounge there will be an extra bar, more seating (not reservable) live music from the Volstead Orchestra in the early evening, then two cabaret shows hosted by 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 also be on hand to peer into your future as well.
