In Pictures: Flapper Girls, Jazz & a Butler @ 8 Northumberland Avenue

September 07, 2017

We love a showcase and we were delighted to get involved in the most recent extravaganza at 8 Northumberland Avenue, a venue that bills itself as the most central in London. That could certainly be the case as it’s just a stone’s throw from Trafalgar Square and you can’t get more central than that! With an exciting evening ahead, we provided entertainment to further enhance the party!

As with all these events, they’d be nothing without the suppliers and we were just one of a few. Alchemy Live had sprinkled some of their stunning cater magic over the evening with canapés to die for upon arrival! But guests couldn’t get to them without walking past our brilliant butler, Ryan. Welcoming guests and giving them an experience they probably never thought they’d have, he provided a stiff upper leap to proceedings and certainly provided a touch of class to the event in a dashing costume and with only the finest manners.

 Meet and greet acts are all well and good but what else did guests have to look forward to. Well, looking around the room they may have been very excited to see two vintage flapper girls! Calling to mind classic scenes from numerous Hollywood musicals and Jay Gatsby’s parties from F. Scott’s Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, these dancing girls had all eyes upon them as they ran through a variety of routines throughout the night.

  “But what were they dancing to?”, we hear you ask. Well, that would be telling. Oh go on then, we’ll tell you, especially as you can see the answer in picture form right here in this blog regardless. We had decided to hire a jazz singer to further the ambience and mood of the occasion. It really was as though we’d all stepped back into the 1920s! Megan sang a variety of hits from a large repertoire of genres including swing, jazz and even a little ragtime.

 This vintage party was an exceptional affair and our thanks must go to 8 Northumberland Avenue for hosting such a memorable night. If you’re looking to book an event that will have guests longing for the days of yesteryear, then this venue in the heart of London will certainly fit the bill. We hugely enjoyed the evening and can’t wait to return with some more entertainment next time!
