Scotland's largest 1920s themed cabaret and club night returns as part of the West End Festival to host an evening of music hall variety, cabaret acts, live band and 1920s nightclub.
The ‘Bright Young Things’ was a nickname given by the tabloid press to a group of bohemian young aristocrats and socialites in 1920s London. They were frequently chased by the paparazzi who were fascinated by their outrageous behaviour, subsequently starting the modern cult of celebrity. They attended elaborate fancy dress parties, went on wild treasure hunts, drank heavily, and threw themselves into the nonstop pursuit of fun in the aftermath of World War I — all of which was enthusiastically covered by journalists, and documented by writers and poets alike.
Think glitzy flapper dresses, top hats and spats, expensive jewels, black or white tie, champagne and pearls. Dress to impress but please no jeans or trainers. We reserve the right to turn you away.
** CABARET SHOW / LIVE BAND **
The centerpiece of the evening's entertainment! You will be dazzled by bright lights, lavish surroundings and a beautiful stage which plays host to our fabulous show. Settle down at one of our candle-lit tables with a bottle of champagne and prepare for the show to begin!
