Come To A Marvellous Cocktail Party!

Monday, March 28, 2011

You might remember back in January I had some resolutions.

If you don’t then I don’t blame you, I’ve tried to block it out too. If you do then you might remember that one of them was to try and get involved in organising some events. Well that one I’ve actually taken some action on (some of the others not so much, but maybe more on that later!)

And, I can now VERY excitedly announce the very first ever Retro Chick event.

It’s on Thursday 26th May in the gorgeous upstairs bar at Farmer Browns in Tombland, Norwich. I’m organising it in conjunction with a friend of mine, Karen, who is setting up a vintage events company called Blue Skies Vintage Events.

The idea is to create an evening where you can slip back into the decadent elegance of the inter war years and Evelyn Waugh’s Bright Young Things. There’ll be cocktails, music and dancing and a perfect excuse to put on your finest vintage togs and swan around pretending you’re in a episode of Poirot.

Tickets are £20 and the price includes 2 tickets for free cocktails to make sure you don’t go unrefreshed.


Book your place before the end of April and you’ll get a 10% discount, making tickets only £18 each. Not bad considering it includes 2 free cocktails as well as the entertainment!

You can find more information about the event and book tickets on the Marvellous Cocktail Party website. I shall be keeping it updated as we finalise more of the entertainment but we currently have the fabulous gypsy swing band Swingball and chanteuse Charlene Jean confirmed and we’re in negotiation with a host of exciting characters to make the evening go with a swing!

I can’t tell you how excited I am about it! Places are fairly limited as the upstairs of Farmer Browns isn’t huge, so make sure you get in early and don’t miss out!

If you’re from out of town and have always fancied a trip to Norwich (it IS a Fine City) then feel free to drop me an email if you want hotel recommendations!

See you there! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Sounds SUPER exciting! Shame I’m gonna be at work 100 miles away… I am sure all those tickets and booze will find good homes though. 🙂

    Actually, this looks gorgeous, Gemma. I have a shoot quite late on but if I can finish up, I may have my husband escort me x

    Would love to come but I think the travel may be a bit too much. Shame, because it sounds amazing.

    I’m really sorry but I can’t make it 🙁 It’s the day after the fella’s birthday and as we are working on the actual day I promised him a slap up meal the night after, otherwise I would be there like a shot.

    I know Karen so I know the two of you will make it a success and I look forward to the next one. Hope you are ok xx
