Here at St Luke’s, we love a party. We’re also blessed with some amazingly talented people in our congregation, from singers and musicians, to actors and comic writers. Once a year or so, the two come together in the form of our much-anticipated Speakeasy.
The Speakeasy is the brainchild of Crispin Holland, who describes it as, ‘Fifty per cent cabaret, fifty per cent variety, and fifty per cent singalong’! On past form, we’ll certainly get that extra fifty per cent in fun!
What can you expect from a St Luke’s Speakeasy? First, you’ll walk into the church to find it’s been transformed into a twinkling candlelit cafe, with the stage set for the show. There’ll be a bar in the kitchen, and nibbles to snack on while you relax among friends and enjoy some top-class musical performances, sketches, cabaret acts and a few surprise moments. Plus there’ll be a house band to lead a singalong we can all join in with. Crispin will, as usual, be our master of ceremonies.
So put the next Speakeasy in your diary for Friday 11 October, 8pm - 11.30pm. Tickets cost £5, or £2 concession, and the event is only open to those aged 16+ (no exceptions!). As well as a chance for us all to get together and have some fun, it’s also a great opportunity to invite friends, family and neighbours along for a relaxed evening out. So get your gladrags on, brush up your vocal cords and get ready for a great night at St Luke’s!
