- Victoria House Basement, Southampton Row, London, WC1B 4DA
Run for cover! The Blitz Party, London’s best-loved and most authentic 1940s party, is back for a spectacular New Year’s Eve Special. Hosted in impressive and atmospheric railways arches, step back in time into an authentic air-raid shelter, complete with sandbags, hurricane lamps, reconnaissance maps and blackout curtains. Victory curled ladies and uniformed soldiers can expect a night of live music, classic cocktails and 40s-style revelry.
Live big bands will perform a repertoire of 40s classics and modern favourites remixed to resemble the style of the era, the perfect soundtrack for land girls and the home guard to cut a rug on the dance floor. The bars will be stocked with a carefully chosen selection of modern takes on classic cocktails all washed down with hearty snacks from the mess stall.
Dress Code – 1940s glam, home front utility clothing and allied uniform all welcome.
