Hire 1920s Themed Entertainment

Celebrate an iconic era in style with jazzy beats and swinging dance routines and unashamedly glamorous get-ups

Revel in the Roaring 20s with thrills, flapper frills, nostalgic dance moves, toe-tapping rhythms and rebellious renegades for an extravagant, good old-fashioned knees-up to give Jay Gatsby a run for his money.


Booking 1920s Style Entertainment

One of the most popular themes in the entertainment industry, the Roaring 20s, remains at the forefront of our minds. As we step with anticipation into the new decade, events will continue to pay homage to the legendary era. It’s the attention to detail that captures our imaginations; the obsession for decadent design, embellishment and all-out glamour is a true delight, that we strive to revive time and time again. 

All great 1920s themed affairs should feature vintage jazz and dance, whether that be the Charleston, the Lindy Hop or the Waltz. Add variety and spice with burlesque showgirls, comedy gangster acts and mix and mingle characters straight out of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. 

Also, don’t forget that the notorious Shelby family were causing a commotion in the 1920s too. You will have a party to remember, by order of the Peaky Blinders!
