‘A jewel in south London’s crown’: Prohibition-inspired night swinging into Clapham Grand

Punters can party like its 1929 when a prohibition-inspired pop-up nightclub comes to Clapham this month.

Electro-swing speakeasy White Mink will bring the finest burlesque and cabaret performers, live bands, and DJs to the Clapham Grand on Friday May 6.

The line-up will include Italian electro-swing maestros Swingrowers and music festival favourites Flash Mob Jazz for the night that will re-imagine vintage cabaret and entertainment for a 21st century club night experience.

Award-winning Rod Laver and Alexandra Hofgartner will perform a beautifully bizarre burlesque act to a dangerously erotic soundtrack.

And electro-swing DJ Jamie Berry will make mayhem to match the mood on the dance floor, mixing doubstep’s wobble bass and shuffling modern beats with vintage swing sounds from the 20s and 30s.

“Originally opened as a grand music hall in 1900, The Clapham Grand is a jewel in south London’s crown, both architecturally and culturally,” said White Mink’s Nick Hollywood.

“The combination of an authentic vintage environment with the trappings of high-tech contemporary culture mean we can create a palpable ambience and deliver an opulent party that is a far cry from a typical night out in Clapham.”

Doors open at 9pm, tickets cost £17.50 in advance and £21 on the door and are available from www.whitemink.co.uk
