Valentine’s Day with a 1920’s twist

Valentine’s Day with a 1920’s twist

Celebrate the Roaring Twenties and a decade of decadence at the adult-only Valentine’s late event held at the Museum of London on 14 February.

Dress up in Twenties fashion and learn to dance the Charleston alongside your partner or friend with demonstrations and classes held by Swing Dance UK. Live jazz will be performed throughout the evening in order to give you the chance to try out your moves, and cabaret will be brought to you by top tap dancer, Josephine Shaker.

Art collective, Hurdy Gurdy, will be on hand to help create the perfect card for your Valentine or the most desirable Art Nouveau accessory to complete the Twenties look. There will also be the chance to learn more about the fashion that characterised a decade with fashion curator Beatrice Behlen who will discuss fashion and sexuality in Twenties London.

To bring a bit of romance to the evening, Write Queer London will host a Bloomsbury Literary Salon with poetry and performance in the most romantic location in the museum, the Pleasure Gardens. And as ever, there will be a bar to provide refreshment when you need a break from dancing the Charleston.
