I Knit London, our capital’s greatest sanctuary for knitters, presents the first ever UK Stitch ‘n Bitch Day, on Saturday 10th November at the Royal National Hotel, Bloomsbury, 09:30-16:30. As well as a huge range of vendors selling yarn, needles and accessories, there will be the first official UK appearance from US knitting guru Debbie Stoller, founder of the SnB Day. Entertainment includes Amy Lamé among others; and there’s a knitting lounge with licensed bar and massage! Best of all, I Knit London have teamed up us to make White Mischief the official aftershow for Stitch ‘n Bitch Day, so we’re looking forward to inviting Stitch ‘n Bitchers to our show once their knitting activities for the day have wound down.Continue Reading
You may recognise Mat Fraser – musician, writer, actor – from the C4 drama “Metrosexuality”; the BBC series “Doctors”; his award-winning documentary “Born Freak”; his provocative ad for Virgin Mobile; his touring show “Sealboy” or more recently as Puck in Kaos Theatre’s update of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
We’re delighted to announce that this absurdly talented polymath is compering White Mischief: “From The Earth To The Moon”, as our Master of Ceremonies for the main stage “Earth Room”. Read on for photos, videos and more on Mat Fraser…Continue Reading
Ophelia Bitz – who wowed the Dr Sketchy room at our last White Mischief – joins us once again on November 10 with a performance on our second stage “Moon Room”.
Bitz is a compere, broadcaster for everyone from Channel 4 Radio to Resonance FM, performance artist, comedienne, muse, events promoter, writer and cabaret performer specialising in hands-free cocktail shaking and dubious forms of anatomical bar-tending.Continue Reading
Dickon Edwards is a London-based writer, flâneur, songwriter, musician, dysfunctional dandy and DJ who will be gracing White Mischief with his presence, and his exceptional taste in music, on November 10 2007.
Since 1997 Dickon has kept a celebrated Internet Diary, making it one of the UK’s longest running ‘blogs’. This dubious qualification means he now appears on TV documentaries about blogging, like BBC1′s ‘Imagine’.
One side-effect of Being Dickon Edwards is DJ-ing at stylish club nights like The Beautiful & Damned, which Time Out called ‘unmissable’. He’s also played to a huge tent of happy dancing people at the 2007 Latitude Festival.Continue Reading
Guests at our last White Mischief will recall the hilarious Dr. Sketchy room, where passers-by were urged to pick up pencil and paper in order to draw a motley assortment of vaudevillians.

Dusty will be compere of the second stage “Moon Room”; for more details on the man who has been called “the best MC on the Edinburgh festival fringe” (including video of Dusty at work), click to read more.Continue Reading

Unlike some clubs, White Mischief does not enforce a strict dress code. We’ve seen guests at White Mischief wearing everything from t-shirts and jeans to nu-rave looks to suits and cocktail dresses to facepaint, Adam Ant outfits and even badger suits. In terms of era, Mischief-Makers have represented every age from the 1890s through to the 1990s. So while we make a point of being inclusive – we don’t turn anyone away – we do encourage everyone to get into the spirit of things by dressing up in whatever way they feel is appropriate. And there are prizes for the most sensationally dressed. So here are a few inspirations for those who plan to get their glad rags on.Continue Reading
B-movie vixen Trixie Malicious is the living embodiment of Mae West’s quip about “a girl who lost her reputation and never missed it.” Of Canadian descent, the former showgirl now finds herself very much at home on London’s vaudeville scene, and will be bringing her own brand of bump’n'grind to White Mischief’s second stage “Moon Room”.Continue Reading
The Shellac Sisters are four glamorous retrochics who dress in all things vintage and play 78rpm records on 1920s wind-up gramophones. They’ll be spinning the sounds in the Lobby Room, the main portal into White Mischief and the hub of our most eccentric entertainments.Continue Reading
