The Dark Circus Party Returns

The Dark Circus party is stepping into the shadows on Saturday 7th March 2015, inviting Londoners to join this carnival of curiosities in a party that is renowned for being thrilling, provocative and risqué.
The time has once again come to wave a solitary farewell to all that is ordinary, pack a magnificently dazzling and daring outfit, and run away to the circus leaving all norms behind. The Dark Circus Party will be beckoning Londoners with top hats and gloved fingers so prepare to be transported to a dark, dreamy and slightly debauched world of heady illusion and unbridled spectacle. Torture Garden, the original purveyors of everything dark and seductive and Bourne & Hollingsworth, London’s finest cocktail creators and party maestros, have once again joined forces to provide party-goers with an evening of abandoned dancing, pleasure seeking and spectacular entertainment.


Upon entering the velvet draped Big Top, thrill-seekers are invited to seek out the bizarre, free their inner exhibitionist and immerse themselves in the weird and wonderful world of the circus. Guests can sip on potent cocktails and peruse the stage from intimate curtained areas, gaze open- mouthed at aerialists as they twist and turn from the ceiling or pay a visit to Miss Marguerite’s painted wagon for a lesson in costume make up. Connoisseurs of the peculiar, Torture Garden’s finest acts bring their very own circus freak to The Dark Circus Party for a visual and sensory extravaganza. Performers regale guests as they mingle with the creatures of the underworld.


The music will be a mix of Electro Swing, Circus Burlesque, Cabaret, Ballroom Blitz and Big Top Party Mash-Ups. DJs for the evening include DJ Dandies, David TG, The Secretary and Lydia Darling.

The dress code for the evening is strict, but stretches the limits of your imagination. Vintage, Glamour & Fantasy with a Dark Circus Twist (Full costumes or a dash of themed styling):
