Valentine's Ball

  • The Candlelight Club A secret location in east London United Kingdom (map)

Saturday 9th February

A special event in a grand, long-forgotten venue in east London, featuring two rooms of entertainment: the Ballroom will be hosted by cabaret cove Champagne Charlie, featuring dancing to live jazz from the Bubbly Boys and vintage DJs the Bee’s Knees, Charleston routines from our chorus line 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 with more seating, where Hot Swing Bohème will be playing dreaming gypsy jazz—the sound of 1920s Paris, the capital of love—in the early evening, followed by two cabaret shows hosted by flâneur, raconteur and bon-viveur Marcel Lucont, featuring elegant acrobatics from duo Deux Ailes, burlesque from bombshell Bonnie Fox and comic song from La Poule Plombée, the chanteuse tortured by her own genius.

Want to know if he or she is The One? Our fortune tellers Foxglove and Lucius will be on hand to advise.

Note that, despite the Valentine styling, this event (like all our parties) is aimed just as much at groups and individuals as couples.
