IF you’ve recently splurged on one of the gorgeous faux fur sashes or collars that currently line the high street, you’ll probably be looking for somewhere suitably posh to wear it.
Luckily for you, Bloomsbury Ballroom is playing host to The 4th Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball this Saturday, and you don’t need to know a Middleton to get in.
The decadent soiree sees the ‘night of a thousand waistcoats’ return to the Grade-2 listed ballroom for an evening of all things decadent. Surrealist music hall acts, outlandish side shows, raucous live music and beautifully shaken cocktails are all laid on for your entertainment.
If that isn’t enough to tempt you, the real live flea circus, tap dancing ladies, one-armed jugglers, birdsong impersonators and the ‘Chap Room’ – designated for courting couples – will surely entertain.
If you’re unsure of what to wear, the theme of the Ball is ‘eccentric’. But be warned – any guests accused of wearing Polyester will be politely asked to stand near a naked flame and handed some tweed.
The Ball commences at 8pm at The Bloomsbury Ballroom on Saturday the 1st of December. Foxtrot your way to www.nightof1000waistcoats.com for more information and to snap up tickets.
