A night to remember

Midnight Apothecary

 Let your host lead you in a traditional cockney sing-a-long on a grand piano with songs from the music hall era, WWI and II, the West End stage and traditional popular songs from across the decades. A good old-fashioned Christmas knees-up!  

Try the legendary botanical cocktails (and some very nice wine and local beer) to get you in the spirit and loosen up your larynx. Down on the terrace deliciously sizzling and seasonal street food from UpsideDown Catering will be available to keep your cockles even warmer. And to keep you in the festive spirit, there will be complimentary marshmallows to toast all evening. 

Tom will be performing three sets during the evening. Guests are invited to bring their cocktails up into the garden, their hot rum toddies into the underground chamber, their street food into both – we really are very relaxed. Blankets will be provided. These promise to be magical Christmas nights filled with festive mirth, merriment and marshmallows.  But hurry. Tickets are going to sell out like hot mince pies! Oh and please dress warmly – we can warm your cockles with a hot toddy or two but it gets blimmen’ chilly down our shaft!

Tom Carradine, already a fixture on the UK’s thriving vintage scene brings with him a bit of a cult following with his dapper chappie cockney-sing-a-long on the ‘ol Joanna
