Gangster Party



 

The Venue We recreate “the club”  – a 1920’s speak easy in the days of prohibition, rackets and illegal gambling. Its got everything – A big band,  gorgeous cigarette girls, a smooth MC and a line up of  fabulous entertainment;  singers, dancers  and vaudeville acts.

The Occasion We tell everyone this is  a great  occasion – The big boss has beaten the rapp, maybe  its a meeting of the clans, or a celebration of a successful Heist.  This involves  the punters in the story – encouraging them to play, talk in their Gangster accents and get into the spirit of the evening.

...looking sharp, celebrating  the forbidden joys of corruption and excess!
