It wouldn't be one of our parties without cabaret antics and sideshow attractions.
Expect the art of tease, freakshows, cabaret, Victorian conmen and penny dreadful characters.
Vintage revamped visuals provided by the vivavacious VJs (say that after a few martinis!)
▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼FANCY DRESS A MUST ▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼
Flappers and Dappers. Steam Punks and Diesel Punks. Rockabilly and Dropabilly. Cabaret and Cabarave. 20s and 30s.

(Men - shirts and shoes, women - a nice dress. Or cross dress if that takes your fancy! Smart not genders is what interests us x )

🎵 The Correspondents 🎵
The Correspondents consist of a singer Mr Bruce and a producer Chucks. Both growing up in South London, they formed in 2007 and within two years had taken their hi-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.The show that quickly established the duo as one of the best live acts in the UK has Mr Bruce assuming the look of a monochrome matador, singing with force, scatting at speed and dancing like his life depends on it while Chucks takes the audience on a journey through a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to the nether regions of electro and drumnbass.
🎵 The Dutty Moonshine Big Band 🎵
For the last 2 years this band has performed nothing but main stages at festivals with packed arenas and they've played nothing but sold out club events in the off season.
This is a 14 piece big band taking Jazz standards and turning them into UK Bass, Garage and House music.
There isn't a hotter act in the world for helping us reboot the wonder of the 20s.
🎵 Madame Barducci 🎵
The Queen of Rock n Roll and Big Bands is the DJ's DJ.
She has the kind of collection of music that has veteran DJ's hovering over her shoulder making notes of which song is playing.
She's conquered the UK festival scene far and wide with Boomtown, Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party as regular festivals for her.
Never has a DJ sounded and looked so fabulous!
