BGWMC (that’s the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club to you and me) is set in the heart of East London and for a celebration of Bethnal Green gone-by with a good ol’ fashioned party in true Working Men’s style of course!
The Workers are having a bang in conjunction with the Cockney Heritage Festival in true Working Men’s style! To mark the closing of the festival, BGWMC invites Cockneys, Mockneys, visitors and locals old and new to join them at the ‘East End’s most celebrated nightspot’… the Bethnal Green Working Mens Club. Expect the time of the lives of The People who party as if it was their last days.
They’ll be serving up an assembly of original artists of yesteryear. From East London and around town they unite for an evening of loveable and unforgettable performance.
There will be the all singing all dancing Banjo player John Barns who first performed in 1949 He vows ‘to be there if I’m still here.’ Voice thrower/ Ventriloquist Lenny Belmont who’s been entertaining in Working Mens and theatres since after the War. National treasures & legends of UK variety since the age of 15… Joan and Barry Grantham with their eccentric dancing!
The old school pioneers will be joined by some young blood. So you can witness a whole clutch of London’s finest new talent presenting prime cuts of Cockney inspired performance. Question is – can they compete with the real McCoy’s of days gone by?
Also on the night, performing will be the wonderfully amusing and talented The Bee’s Knees! London’s finest flappers kick the moves from days gone by into the thoroughly modern day! And London-centric comedy music act Underbling & Vow, who grab Music Hall classics and giving them a 21st century dusting down!
Finally, if you’re hank marvin’, Working Men’s Grub will be supplying classic British Nosh with an East End twist.
SATURDAY 27TH JULY // 7.30pm until 2am // £8 ADVANCE ONLINE
