Blitz Party and Prohibition
We first heard about Prohibition at our London Christmas Vintage Fair, their New Years Eve Party sounded immense but unfortunately we couldn't just ditch all our NYE plans and join the party! So you can imagine our excitement when the guys behind The Blitz Party got in touch with us about their next event on Saturday the 8th May which just happens to be the night before our Bethnal Green Fair! Perfect!
Taking place in Village Underground, Shoreditch, May's event promises to be another fantastic night of the finest 1940s cocktails, music and dancing. The Blitz Party favourites, Ta Mère & Twin Tonic will play big band tunes for fun-loving party girls who long to share a cocktail with a handsome man in uniform. The Spitfire Bar will serve good old Kentish Ale and hearty food to hungry soldiers and another room will project original newsreels and wartime films, accompanied by live music.The Blitz Party is London’s hottest night, where cocktails, dancing and neighbourly spirit are the order of the evening. Can you resist because we can't!
And Prohibition is back at another secret location on Saturday 22nd May. Hidden away from the prying eyes of police, this beautiful west end ballroom will be filled with flappers and dandies surreptitiously quaffing bootlegging booze, dancing the Charleston and trying their hand at Roulette. Having become one of the most sensational parties in London, April’s event promises to be another exciting foray into the glamarous 1920s when contraband and the Charleston were the order of the evening. Harking back to the hedonistic antics of the 1920s, guests are invited to sip classic cocktails from teacups and to enjoy Prohibition’s flamboyant floor shows and live music. Throughout the night, entertainment will include live bands, DJs on gramophones, silent cinema, flapper dancing girls and roulette gambling tables.Previous events have seen a wide variety of extravagant 20s costumes, including sequined flapper dresses, headbands pierced three piece suits, tuxedos, top hats and spats. The speakeasy atmosphere and decadent outfits mean guests at Prohibition step back in time to fully indulge in this unique and clandestine revival of a bygone age. Tickets are £15 and sold in advance via Ticketweb by visiting the Prohibition website or calling 020 7724 1617.
We'll see you there!
