on high times and corruption

I’ve pretty much always liked the 1920’s. Style wise it’s always something I’ve liked but always found difficult to wear, especially without looking like I was in fancy dress. I suppose that’s what’s going to be so good about “High Times and Corruption” – I can pretty much dress to the nines (any excuse) and go listen to jazz, pretending I’m far cooler than I actually am. Let’s face it, the 1920’s were pretty brilliant – they gave us art deco, the surrealist movement, jazz and The Great Gatsby. The hemlines rose, the corsets were cast off and the waist line on dresses dropped. Good times. That’s probably why The Candle Lit Club have produced a cheeky wee night called “High Times and Corruption.” April 1st, The Grand Central Hotel will be a night to celebrate the bygone age of the roaring 1920s Speakeasies, with live jazz, dancing, a cheeky wee goody bag and a drink on arrival – looks like it’s shaping up to be quite a night. Still need an incentive? First 50 people to purchasey a wee ticket get entered in to a prize draw to win an outfit from Saratoga Trunk. My heart, she beats.
It’s worth noting that the money raised from this event actually goes towards Glasgow’s Old People’s Welfare Association – with loneliness, poverty and ill health being an issue, GOPWA do all they can to improve the quality of older people within Glasgow.
Tickets are £15 and available from Ticket Web. The night runs from 7pm-1am so really quite excited to see what The Candle Lit Club have planned for the evening. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to play The Great Gatsby game, which is firmly filed under things that make my life better.
