A Vintage New Year’s Eve Party @ Royal Festival Hall

A Vintage New Year’s Eve Party @ Royal Festival Hall

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Southbank Centre.

Celebrate the New Year in iconic style, with exclusive access to one of London's most breathtaking riverside views, where you can enjoy the fireworks away from the crowds. This year’s party is curated by Wayne & Gerardine Hemingway and the Vintage team.

Inside Royal Festival Hall, prepare yourself for an extravaganza of uplifting music from the '20s to the '90s, live bands, DJs, dining and authentic period cocktails…

…and don’t forget to pick a decade and dress glamorously!

Royal Festival Hall will be transformed into nightclubs, restaurants, beauty parlours, dance classes, cinemas and more. Here’s a taste of what to expect:

The Soul Casino dance floor reverberates to a string of key innovators playing dance music from deep funk to northern, Motown, rare groove, disco, house, boogie and classic soul.

The Pick Up Joint is the perfect '60s-themed bar for all those singles, couples or groups of friends up for letting their hair down, with kitsch prizes and crazy-cool costume changes.

The very finest entertainment from the '20s-'40s era, including the UK's number one George Formby impersonator and the famous 18-piece swing orchestra The New Squadronaires.

Hear the greatest '50s rock 'n' roll, rockabilly and original rhythm 'n' blues, plus sing your heart out with rock 'n' roll karaoke, and improve your dance moves and learn the jive or stroll.

A Vintage New Year's Eve Party is at the Royal Festival Hall on Monday 31 December.
