Vintage parties arrive in London

Night-life loving history buffs visiting central London hotels may be interested in attending a 1929-themed party aboard the SS Atlantica.

Brought to London by the team behind Prohibition and the Blitz Party, the event promises to be a “sophisticated soiree”.

The dress code is strictly 1930s formal seaware, while guests can enjoy cabaret, silent cinema, a casino, jazz and big band music as well as Charleston dancing.

“Gentlemen should emulate the starched collar and immaculate dinner suit of an Agatha Christie villain and ladies can take their inspiration from the silk and fur ensembles worn by the stars of the silver screen,” comments the organisers.

Those that are unable to attend the event on the SS Atlantic may be interested in celebrating on September 24th at the party which takes place in a “secret West End location”.

“Hide yourself away from the prying eyes of police as we usher you into this unique venue in the West End,” comments the group.

The upcoming event is taking place at the Camden Centre, the borough’s only remaining civic centre.

Furthermore, the Bliz Party will be held on October 8th and is set to take place in an underground bunker.

“Pin up your victory rolls and wave your Union Jack with pride, dust off your stripes and polish your medals. Turn out that light and pile into our East End air raid shelter for the Blitz Party,” says organisers.

The Guardian described the 1940s-themed evening as halfway between a “retro night out and an actual living history workshop”, featuring actors in the role of soldiers, GI’s and factory girls.

Past festivities have been entertained by swing bands, authentic newsreel footage and Second World War movies.
