1920's Style Gatsby Speakeasy
No party would be complete without a splash of gigglewater! We shall have a selection of 20's inspired cocktails on offer to delight!
Dancing is positively encouraged! Although there will be tables to sit and chat at, we encourage dancing on the polished wooden dancefloor!
Expect lots of live music throughout the event - everything from music hall, to ragtime, Dixieland to hot jazz - and a bit of electroswing thrown in to finish the night!
Dan Medusa originally ran a 20's themed night at The Cricketers, Kingston, as part of the LuciD team, and it was a roaring success. With live music, cocktails, circus, theatre and dancing, it hit a chord of retro loveliness.
Ben Henderson has been running events such as The Surrey Steampunk Convivial, as well as various festivals for over a decade, and regularly hosts open mic nights.
Ben bumped into Dan one St. Patrick's night, well after midnight, and they reminisced about the party - wasn't it fun? The Great Gatsby...prohibition...music...a bit of interactive theatre, some circus acts...cocktails!
And wouldn't it be a fun idea to do something like that again, they asked themselves? And yes, was the answer.
The Sugarfoot Shindig is the answer!
