Relive the romance of the Jazz Age at the Candlelight Club’s special 1920s ball, in a long-forgotten, candlelit hall in east London where a host of flappers and Bright Young Things will frolic in two rooms of entertainment.
In the Ballroom get ready to glide and shimmy to live music from Champagne Charlie and the Bubbly Boys. Charlestoning along to the band will be our chorus line the Gatsby Girls, and when the band aren’t playing DJs Holly and Aila from the Bee’s Knees will be spinning vintage platters into the night.
There is also a three-course dinner menu to preorder, or the option to reserve tables with Champagne and sharing platters of food, plus a menu of bar snacks to order on the night.
Meanwhile in the Cabaret Lounge there will be another bar and more tables, where Hot Swing Boheme will be playing dreamy jazz from Paris, the city of love, followed by two variety shows hosted by flâneur, raconteur and bon-viveur Marcel Lucont, featuring elegant acrobatics from duo Deux Ailes, burlesque from bombshell Bonnie Fox and comic song from La Poule Plombée, the chanteuse tortured by her own genius.
Want to know if he/she is The One for you? Our fortune tellers Foxglove and Lucius will be on hand to advise.
Guests receive an email a few days before the event revealing the secret location.
“The Candlelight Club really is the closest you’ll find to an authentic Jazz Age experience in central London. Its unique ambience, fuelled by hundreds of candles, is truly a scene to behold.”

Note that, despite the Valentine styling, this event (like all our parties) is aimed just as much at groups and individuals as couples.
