Looking for something a little different to do this Christmas? Well, you’re in luck. One Night Records offers a one-of-a-kind event, and this winter, they’re adding a splash of Christmas sparkle to their London Bridge line up.
Following the success of their Covid-friendly adventure last year, the One Night Records team are here to stay (without the strict regulations this time). The evenings will draw musical inspiration from the early 20th century to create an adventure through the history of music. As you wander from room to room, you’ll be treated to a new era – and at this time of year, you’ll hear a few festive twists on some of the tunes.
As you step under the arches of London Bridge, lose yourself in a world of talented musicians and themed sets that’ll bring celebrated eras to life – live music lives here. Inside a maze of tunnels, you’ll essentially travel through time at your own pace – from peak 50’s Rock’n’Roll through wartime boogie, and back into the golden heyday of Jazz, the dusty blues shack, and a brassy blast of funk in New Orleans. It’s like a playlist come to life, and will make for an experience like no other.
After all the singing and dancing, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite. Not only will Mama J’s Soul Food Shack feed your stomach, but much like the music, it’ll feed your heart too. Alongside lip-smacking jambalaya, cornbread, ribs, and wings, Mama J will serve up tasty cocktails, so be sure to make a pitstop along your musical adventure for a Soho Street raspberry daiquiri, or zesty Tequila Sunrise.
To truly immerse yourself in the different worlds, guests are highly encouraged to come dressed up in gear that corresponds to your favourite era. Think cowboy boots, flapper dresses, or even go all out with a Chuck Berry-esque red guitar… There are a host of ticket options to suit the night you’re after, from simple entry to entrance, main meal and welcome drink. Hey, if you’re there for the whole five hours, you’ll need to fuel up for your adventure.
