Calling all Flapper Girls & 1920s Gangster Guys to the Audlem Speakeasy today!
New to the Audlem Music & Arts Festival this year is a "Pop-Up 1920s Speakeasy".
Located in the Methodist Church Car Park again today, Monday 5th June, visitors are invited to come and join us for non-alcoholic cocktails (well it is the period of prohibition), Charleston lessons, flapper head dress making and more.
Set to the backdrop of the sights and sounds of the Roaring Twenties there is something for everyone.
The speakeasy's resident songstress is the stunning, jazz vocalist Bexi Owen who will be singing the work of composers like Gershwin and artists such as Ella Fitzgerald.
Behind this new addition to the Festival is locally based vintage events &
authentic prop hire business "Happy Heritage"- click on the link below the poster — with kind support from The Academy Buckley the 1920s Ballroom.
Foolowing the Charleston lessons on Saturday, The Academy of Performing Arts from Wychwood Village & Betley will be running Bugsy Malone inspired workshops at regular intervals today from midday Monday 4th June with the opportunity for participating children to perform in a mini "Fat Sam's Grand Slam Speakeasy" performance at the festival!
Keep up to date with the timings of our different activities by following us on Twitter @HappyHeritage and Facebook: www.facebook.com/happyheritage

So, dig out a feather boa or put on your braces & "Won't you Charleston With Me"!
