NYE - Return of the 20s on Tuesday 31st December 2019

Join us in celebrating The Return of the 20s this New Year's Eve!
The Market House will for one night only play host to Reading's flamboyant revellers and decadent flappers, as we celebrate the 100 year anniversary since the National Prohibition Act. Travel back to the 1920s and immerse yourself in the underground world of lawless bootleggers and their molls for this lavish New Year's Eve party.


Return of the 20s is a spectacular evening of sensational music and captivating performances. From jazz bands and singers to DJs on gramophones, dancing troupes and pop up performances around the venue, there will be plenty to experience.

Come dressed to dance and dazzle, mingle and meet characters. At Return of the 20s everyone is a someone, but not everyone or everything is as it seems. Immerse yourself in the unfolding experience and you may even find yourself becoming part of the action.


Food market during the day, secret joint at night, the Market House goes underground for this call-back to the Prohibition era and becomes the premise of many illicit activities. Sip on some moonshine in the jazz lounge, find your way into the secret gambling den or go up to the rooftop to dance under the stars.

Throughout the evening The Market House will be serving a tempting array of cheeky cocktails, tasty treats and delicacies, along with their excellent selection of beers and spirits.

Upgrade to a VIP ticket to reserve a table with Prosecco and ensure a base for your party to enjoy the evening's entertainment and live an exclusive experience.


Our speakeasy is a respectable establishment, home of flappers & dappers and hideout for gangsters & molls. Dress to dazzle in all your vintage 20's finery, dust off your hats and feather boas, 'cos there's no such thing as being overdressed for New Year’s Eve! No jeans or trainers or any other futuristic phonus balonus.
