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!
Added to the mix are interactive experiences, comedy, spontaneous encounters with musicians and costumed characters in unexpected quarters… and a range of DJs representing every genre from jazz, blues and rock’n'roll to country and world music.
With four rooms of entertainment and two stages of music and vaudeville, there’s an extraordinary abundance of fun to be had during the seven hours of a White Mischief party. It’s a show from start to finish, so we invite guests to arrive as early as they can to be sure of catching everything.
No wonder Time Out called White Mischief “event of the week, the month, the year“!
Each room is decorated in line with our theme, courtesy of set dressers who have worked on film sets and have been involved in Punchdrunk’s “Masque of the Red Death”. The aesthetic is a neo-Victorian, Jules Verne inspired “steampunk” environment bringing to mind the romance of the industrial age.
Dressing up is not by any means compulsory – everyone is welcome at White Mischief – but we do encourage dressing-up and are pleased to share our own recommendations for costume rental, second-hand and vintage retailers in London. If you’re able to enter the spirit of things, then wonderful: high street and designer clothes may be expensive, but a bit of imagination costs nothing!

What the press say about White Mischief…
“A bash that makes Alice and her snooping down the nooks and crannies of Wonderland seem about as exciting as nipping down to the frozen gods aisle at Asda” – the Guardian
“White Mischief deals in good, old-fashioned entertainment — as long as your idea of good and old-fashioned consists of busty b-movie vixens, insane space pirates, and striptease artists who have a tendency to set themselves on fire. If it is, then you’ll probably love the mix of vaudevillian entertainment, steam-punk chaos and mischief that defines White Mischief’s increasingly infamous indoor festivals” – Flavorpill
“Just about the perfect night’s entertainment” – Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
This event has the scenesters all abuzz: prepare to be amazed.” – Urban Junkies
“Highly entertaining, if not for the squeamish… They will leave you aghast” – Music Week
