It’s a Wonderful Vintage Jubilee Jamboree
Taking place across two beautiful vintage venues situated streets away from each other in Kings Cross, It’s a Wonderful Vintage Jubilee Jamboree invites attendees on a journey back in time to the ‘Cool Britannia’ of 1952-53 by recreating the pomp, ceremony and era when HRH Princess Elizabeth first became Queen.
A strictly vintage dress-up, tickets in advance only occasion, this is for swing dancers and none swing dancers alike and for all vintage style lovers and those who adore the Forties and Fifties, dress up, glamour, music, accessories, frolics and fun.
The antics kick off with a ‘Festival of Britain’ style warm up party at 3.30pm -7.00pm at real ale pub, The Queens Head, Kings Cross, where there will be old fashioned sing alongs around the piano and ukulele, cupcakes and cream teas from Julie Madly Deeply (vintage tea party purveyor), tarot readings, a pop up vintage hair and make-up booth from The Vanity Box, clothing stall from Vivien of Holloway and acres and acres of vintage Union Jack bunting.
The vintage jubilee party atmosphere then moves on to the famous Water Rats Theatre, Kings Cross from 7.30pm – 1.00am, where a line-up of top London swing and R&B DJs will spin the decks, and a variety act entertainment schedule featuring Folly Gosh burlesque, magic tricks, vintage comedy capers and two live swing dance sets from a top London swing band, will keep revelers entertained and dancing until 1.00am.
There will also be a special fashion show sponsored by Vivien of Holloway featuring a selection of her most beautiful outfits modeled by some of London’s most stylish vintage scenesters.
