The Gatsby Club, Scotland's largest 1920s themed cabaret and club night, returns with our Midsummer Ball as part of the West End Festival!

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!

On the line-up we have international burlesque starlet, MARA DE NUDÉE, flying all the way from Paris to headline the night. We also have vintage close-harmony trio; THE RAGTIME DOLLS, cabaret songstress & musical saw player; MARKEE DE SAW, hula hoop extraordinaire; VOLCANIC ASH, and vaudevillian cabaret duo & comperes for the evening; THE CREATIVE MARTYRS.

After the show we have live music from Leeds based 6-piece swing ensemble, THE BIG EASY, followed by resident gramophone DJ, LORD HOLYRUDE, who will keep toes tapping and flappers flapping into the wee small hours. So make sure to have your dancing shoes on and your Charleston moves at the ready!

After the show make sure to get down to the front of the stage for The Gatsby Club's official ballroom photograph. Have your image frozen in time amongst our glamorous performers, cast and audience members.

We'll also be running our usual end of show raffle with lots of fantastic prizes to be won so make sure to purchase your raffle tickets on the door.

Other highlights include our cupcake stall brought to you by Sweet Cupkates Bakery, and our glamorous photobooth, courtesy of Pearl & Plum Photography.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
