Speakeasy - a 1920s Musical Revue
This May, The Wellington Footlights Society will take you back to the Roaring Twenties with Speakeasy - a 1920s Musical Revue.
With sultry singers, delectable drinks, and a historic venue practically dripping with decadence, this event promises to be an extravagant experience.
Guests of Speakeasy are invited to enjoy this immersive 1920s experience in their best black tie and Gatsby-inspired finery, surrounded by flappers, bootleggers; and jazz. An era-inspired refreshment menu has been developed specifically for this event in association with Fling Cocktails.
For the most lavish of guests, there are a select number of VIP Tables available each evening. Positioned for the best view of our performers, each VIP table includes four tickets, four cocktails from our 1920s menu, four chocolate treats from Makana Confections, and a grazing board from the Library Bar.
Hungry for more? Delicious delicacies will be available for purchase throughout the evening from Chow on Tory.
Non-alcoholic drinks will also be made available, and guests under the age of 18 are welcome with the supervision of a parent or guardian.
For the true Speakeasy experience, we recommend arriving via the Forresters Lane alleyway - the secret password is required for entry
