Imagine this: a network of rooms filled with people wearing strange animal costumes. Leopards and tigers sashay past you whilst two rhinos dance. There is a wolfman eating the free candy floss, and a crocodile has just won the vegetable carving competition. In one room tired bunny rabbits watch a screening of The Jungle Book. But the real action is happening in the jacuzzis, where a bear has stripped naked. There is a lot of happy splashing - mind the water at your feet.
This is The Last Tuesday Society's Animal Party. With a percentage of the proceeds going to an animal charity (last time it was Save the Rhino), you can party and know you are doing a good deed. Most of the fun is in getting dressed up. People make a real effort. In fact, no costume, no entrance, even if you have bought a ticket. The whole effect is a little sexual. The hot tub was getting a little steamy when I left. Well, we are all animals underneath.
The party is held in various locations. Last time it was in Electrowerkz - usually a rock hangout. The time before it was in the Old Vic Tunnels.
