2. ENTRY WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE NIGHT FOR THOSE PREPARED TO QUEUE
As the event is on from 8pm to 5am, there will be a throughput of guests. Some will arrive early and leave early. Some will certainly leave just after midnight. We have not over-sold so it won’t take much for some space to open up. Accordingly those of you who are happy to turn up on-spec and possibly wait a while should be able to get in. We are recommending that you arrive at the venue from 23:30, by which we will have a good idea of what the capacity is looking like.
Entry will be £60 cash from 23:30 until 01:00. After 01:00, entry will be £40 cash. After 02:00, entry will be £20 cash. We have stage performances on until gone 02:30 and then DJs so there will be entertainment even if you arrive late.
The venue is Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, London WC1B 4DA. Entrance through the central doors in the middle of the stone building, which will be illuminated. Full details of the venue including photos, a map and directions are available at this link.

The Chap’s legendary “Night of a Thousand Waistcoats” returns after last year’s tenth anniversary party, for the Second Grand Anarcho Dandyist Ball. Moving the location to the much larger and grander Bloomsbury Ballroom, London’s only remaining original Art-deco ballroom, this year’s extravaganza will set the precedent for an annual Chap Ball, each party striving to be even more spectacular than the last.
Guests will leave the 21st century behind as soon as their immaculately shod feet reach the bottom of the entry staircase. The breathtaking grand ballroom will immediately sweep them back to the heady 1920s and 1930s, aided by delicious retro cocktails served by our partners Bourne & Hollingsworth.
Your extremely louche host will be Nickolas Grace, the actor who played Anthony Blanche in the original Brideshead Revisited, who will be “charming thwough the gwille” for the entire evening. In the Grand Ballroom there will be a full cabaret line-up, topped by the irrepressible Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer, giving an exclusive live preview of his brand-new longplayer, “I Say!” This evening of old-world jollity will also include wandering acts among the guests, including Viv the Spiv, Escalado horseracing and the legendary “Chap Room”, where guests may dictate a letter to a 1950s secretary and have it delivered on a silver salver to another guest by a butler.
The dress code will be: 1890s decadence, 1920s villainy, 1930s glamour, 1940s spiv. Anyone arriving in Polyester will be politely asked to stand near a naked flame and handed some tweed. Guests with valuable overcoats may rest assured that this year’s Ball will offer a fully operational cloakroom.

EVE OF TOMORROW BALL
“WE MAKE TOMORROW, TODAY!”
London in the 1930s. The First World War is a distant memory and the Second World War is yet to trouble our dreams. This is the dawn of technological consumerism: electricity, the telephone, movies, radio, TV have all made their mark. We stand on the shoulders of Edison and Tesla; of Logie-Baird, of Einstein and Kellogg and Fleming.
A SPLENDID, SUMPTUOUS, SECRET CENTRAL LONDON VENUE
The magnificent stone and marble entrance of our secret Central London location leads on to period Art Deco interiors that evoke the forgotten grandeur of days-gone-by while hinting at the decadent future to come. The venue details will be revealed by electronic mail during the week running up to the party to those who have purchased their ticket.
THE VERY BEST IN PERFORMANCE, MUSIC AND SIDESHOWS
The night will feature cabaret, contemporary circus, roving performance, live music and art installations across several rooms – plus DJs playing electro-swing, vintage jazz, rock’n'roll and more until the early hours. An interactive game element will invite guests to unlock the secret of the Eve of Tomorrow.
Full line-up to be announced shortly
EARLY BIRD TICKETS
We have a limited number of early-bird tickets priced at £35. Snap them up while you can as the full-price tickets will be higher. With the combined popularity of Boom Boom and White Mischief, this event WILL sell out in advance – just like White Mischief’s last two New Year’s Eve parties in 2009 and 2008.

THE VEERING WHEELS
They present for your delight a sumptuous night of spectacular cabaret and circus plus red-hot live music drawn from across the seven continents. Tiaras and turbans meet side-by-side while the DJs spin vintage tunes laced with a global twist.
The Tusk and Garter Club is brought to you by White Mischief, famed for their vaudevillian antics in London clubs, Georgian mansions and festivals such as Bestival (“…their parties make Alice and her snooping down the nooks and crannies of Wonderland seem about as exciting as nipping down to the frozen goods aisle at Asda” – THE GUARDIAN), ably assisted by Carnival Catalyst, local purveyor of wonky vintage shenanigans such as Steampunk Hidden Events & Silver Wednesdays.
Dressing up is not compulsory but encouraged – vintage, extraordinary, glamorous, costumes from across the planet…

Back in the eighteenth century when it was considered very unseemly for a woman to be educated, a group of daring ladies got together and formed a literary group – the Blue Stockings Society.
A coterie of London’s premier female cabaret and burlesque performers have got together to reconvene this prestigious sorority, with a sassy 21st century spin, for a night that’s very funny, very clever, very sexy and very memorable.
