Sure there's still one more day of work to go, but who cares? Thursday is the new Friday on the 18th September at Cafe 1001. The culture club cafe on Brick Lane will be hosting The Jazz Age Party from 7pm. Tickets cost 10 or 8 for groups of four plus; for every ticket sold, a 1 donation will be made to Islington's War Child charity. The evening will begin with a complimentary vintage 1920s cocktail, and a not so 1920s barbecue.

Entertainment includes a silent comedy short starring Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, and Charlie Chaplin, followed by Effervescent at 8pm. Effervescent is a five-piece jazz ensemble, recreating music from the 1920s. They will perform songs by performers such as Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Ray Henderson, and Cole Porter.

With tunes that are sure to your shoes tapping, it is lucky Cafe 1001 has a dance floor. Shimmy, Charleston, Foxtrot, do the Varsity Drag, or freestyle your own thing until midnight.
