Events » Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball 2012

Published on September 28th, 2012

Ladies and gentlemen, it is once again time to dust off your feather boas, polish your spats, buff up your finest cufflinks and alert your barber, footman, batman, valet, butler and tailor to a long month of preparations – for the Fourth Grand Anarcho-Dandyist Ball has been given a date and a venue.

This year, in association with Bourne & Hollingsworth, The Chap will be returning to the Grade-2 listed splendour of the Bloomsbury Ballroom, where in 2010 our guests were dazzled by the original 1930s fixtures, fittings and chandeliers that greeted them at the bottom of a sweeping staircase. As well as its main grand ballroom, Bloomsbury Ballroom features another more intimate cocktail bar, where we will be offering extra sideshows and entertainment.

In the grand ballroom, our headline act will be Albert Ball’s Flying Aces, featuring the delectable Patricia Hammond on vocals. Other acts will include Kwabana Lindsay – a white tie-wearing, fiddle-playing, umbrella juggling tightrope walker; Spacedog – a theremin and saw-playing lady assisted by on-stage automata. In the cocktail bar there will be a real live flea circus; the Flirtinis, who will teach you how to flirt with the damsel or gent of your choice; and Viv the Spiv, who will teach you the ways of contraband cigarettes and nylons.

The dress code is: Eccentric; Eclectic; Electric; Esoteric. No plimsolls or pantaloons de nimes, obviously.

    Dear Sir,
    Surely the only acceptable attire for a Ball is a tail coat with top hat ensemble? Am furious that the very arbiter of good taste ,the Chap, appears to be condoning,nay,encouraging some sort of bizarre dressing up competition!
    For shame Sir,for shame!
