It’s by no means compulsory to dress up at White Mischief – we welcome every type of mischief maker, no matter how they are attired. Still, we encourage everyone to enter into the spirit of the occasion and past shows have seen some fabulous outfits: everything from giant pandas to steampunk rocketmen. It needn’t be expensive: imagination costs nothing!
This time round the theme is “Around the World in 80 Days”, again drawn from a Jules Verne novel, allowing those of you with a love of Victoriana to indulge your steampunk fantasies. For everyone else there is a whole globe’s worth of inspiration to make use of. India, Africa, China, Japan, Mexico, Polynesia, the USA, Ireland, Scotland, Holland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Thailand, South America, Egypt, the Middle East, Brazil, Spain… literally any country could become the basis for a look. Check inside for videos, photos and links not only to our articles on steampunk but also links to our huge directory of London’s best second hand, charity, vintage, retro and antique clothing shops – plus information on costume rental locations, accessories providers and hair salons.Continue Reading
With just a few days to go before White Mischief “Around the World in 80 Days”, we can at last unveil our final acts to be announced, the seers and mystics of our exotic Hall of Oracles. Curated and hosted by Ophelia Bitz, the Hall of Oracles is a place to find relaxation and solace, but also a place to receive prophecies and messages from the Great Beyond.
Inside you will be met by Elias Rosenkreuz, Trance Medium and Prophet; Maria Romaine, genuine gypsy tarot reader descended from the Oldest Roma Family; Rocki Deniro, the Mad Mystic Monk of Malysia; and La Celine, Prophetess, Seer and Ornithomantis. Read on for photographs and further elucidation…Continue Reading
White Mischief is a one night indoor festival combining all the best bits of a gig, a club, a party and a show – with none of the boredom and certainly no mud.
We hand-pick unique live musical acts and intersperse them with some of the most astonishing vaudeville and circus performers around. Past shows have included everything from a man electrocuting himself with 20,000 volts of visible electricity to harpists who play with strings attached to hooks in their own skin!Continue Reading
White Mischief “Around the World in 80 Days” is held at Scala in King’s Cross, London, a 1900s-era former art nouveau cinema. The venue contains two stages customised for live music and club nights, but also a variety of smaller rooms and spaces, which will be decorated in line with our theme by White Mischief’s team of art directors, some of whom have worked as set dressers in film and within the theatre for Punchdrunk’s “Masque of the Red Death”. To find out more, including address, transport, phone number and information about the outdoor smoking patio, read on.Continue Reading
