Still stuck for something to do tonight?Have a look at this list of London happenings; there’s something for everyone, from festive fetish balls to humble house parties. Here’s a couple of the best vintage picks:
Fleur de Guerre and her team at The Fox present another fantastic vintage night; this time seeing in the New Year with live swing, burlesque and casino, served with a generous helping of cocktails and canapes.
‘Take a trip back in time to the Golden Era, in Las Vegas. OK, Shoreditch. It was a time when the dames were dangerously well-dressed and the men knew how to handle them… the Rat Pack were setting hearts and playing cards a-flutter and James Bond was the newest literary hero. We’re turning the Fox into a casino this time, with free blackjack and roulette tables to gamble your way into the new decade. ‘
Expect burlesque delights from Miss Kiki Kaboom, Sophia St Villier and Tallulah Tempest, as well as big band swing hits from The Rat Pastilles. Definitely a chance to get out your vintage gladrags and start the New Year in style. Tickets are £25
Fancy something even more theatrical? SKIP theatre are putting on a nostalgic show at the Arcola theatre, with performances from the likes of ’1927′ who will do skits from ‘Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’, including the Charleston, enchanting visuals, and a beautiful blend of fractured fairy tales shown through animation, cabaret, silent film & live hall-style music. Buy tickets for the Soiree here.
For something to warm you up, try the NYE tropical speakeasy, combining the sounds from Shebeens & bodega’s, the finest Afro Funk, Latin, Calypso Highlife & slightly parched lips, with music from Sofrito Sound System, Koichi Sakai, Yaabafunk & more, details of where to buy tickets here.
Prohibition are also back with more naughty alcohol consumption and flapper frolics.
Whatever you choose to do, wherever you are, have a wonderful night and we wish you all the best for the coming year; we are working on lots of exciting new projects, so stay tuned and hope to see you sometime soon!
