"This year’s decadent soiree sees the Chaps return to 2010’s elegant venue, the Grade-2 listed Bloomsbury Ballroom. The theme of the Ball is “eccentric”, with the Gonzo Dog-do Bar Band headlining – Britain’s only tribute act to Vivian Stanshall’s surrealist 60s dada music-hall electro psychedelic outfit."
"Other acts will include a real live flea circus, tap dancing ladies, one-armed jugglers, birdsong impersonators and more. In the cocktail bar, the Flirtinis will teach you how to flirt, Viv the Spiv will teach you how to smoke contraband chocolate and our bartenders will teach you how to drink 1930s cocktails."
"The dress code is eccentric, eclectic, electric, esoteric."
Hosted by Michael “Atters” Attree
