When it comes to dressing up for Easter most of us will expect to see a mob of giant bunnies massing the streets of London, but head down to Marlybone on Sunday and you'll experience less of a Watership Down and more a journey back in time. The Hold Up Heroines Grande Easter Ball is a masquerade party with a strict 18th century dress code; all highwaymen must be accompanied by a heroine, and all heroines must be wearing hold-ups.
At 8pm you will be whisked away to the Russian Imperial Dynasty, where the Royal House of Romanov are facing a serious threat. Their treasure must be protected when the wicked Count Valentine returns for revenge with his Black Hussars. In come the Holdup Heroines to save the day. But who are these masked women? Think the musketeers in corsets and you're on the right track.
From £50-£130 you can party into the wee hours of the morning and experience a night of electrifyingly theatrical grandeur, a sumptuous banquet, and a whole host of femme fatale DJs, including Lady Soul from Ibiza's legendary. KM5.
