The Ric Rac Club – Girls, Gin and Gunpowder.

Yes, it is that time again, myself and the rest of the Vintage Mafia are back with the Ric Rac Club.

After a hugely successful launch in September, here is our second instalment. The Ric Rac is a club aimed at vintage aficionados and newcomers alike, with the focus on socialising rather than partner dancing. You can expect the best tunes from the 1930s to the 1960s spread over two rooms, a creative drinks menu, a soon-to-be legendary free raffle and a fun, welcoming crowd of well-dressed guests.

Specially selected guest DJs this month are Johnny Chrome and Silver, who will be spinning 50s lounge music, and All Fringe, No Knickers who will be playing 60s and Northern Soul hits, accompanied by a Northern Soul dancing demonstration.

Gemma will serenade the guests with her ukulele – playing hits of the golden era and the 21st Century and Auntie Maureen will putting together a playlist of hits from the dawn of the dance band era.

This time we also have the fantabulosa Miss Honey Bare on hand to transform you into a vintage queen with her mobile hair and make-up salon (appointments can be pre booked at

The Ric Rac club is sponsored by The King's Ginger liqueur, allowing us to provide a free cocktail for every guest. All attendees also receive a free raffle ticket, and with prizes ranging from vintage accessories, homewares, and fabulous garments from Love Ur Look and Yellow Bird Hats, booze, food and other assorted delights, no one goes home empty-handed... or at least not sober.
