Back to the 40s at the Boiler Room
« on: May 03, 2012, 11:08:36 PM »
Hello.

Wow my first post on here in ages.  I've broght tickets to go to this night at the Boiler Room on Sat 19th May.  There are a few tickets left. Looks like great fun. Another opportunity for corsets or anyone who went in 40s gear to Julia and Petes can crack out the outfit again

Calling all Dapper Dans and Susie-Q’s, if you missed out on NYE 2011’s Blitz party, now’s your chance to don your stripes and cut loose to the brassy, killer-diller sounds of swing as The Boileroom steps back in time to the roaring forties. Be greeted at the entrance way with a jar o’ hooch by one of our dames in the ritziest gin mill in Guildford. The joint’ll be hopping till sunrise, so grab your best gal and flip your wig on the floor to the sound of the band.

Yey glad to hear it tor!  Trying to decide how far to go with the look.  Thinking lots of hair spray and a curling iron may be required
