On 28th October, in celebration of All Hallows’ Eve, The Last Tuesday Society cordially and conspiratorially invites you to dance with your demons and exhume your darkest desires at this year’s famed and fabled Danse Macabre. As winter rolls closer and the air hangs thick with the last dying breaths of summer’s ease, it’s time to gather in close, hot heat forming like a haze on a frenzied dance floor of perfect strangers, exchanging masked glances and electric flashes of skin brushing skin. Within the opulent surrounds of the Clapham Grand Theatre, allow us to beguile and bewitch you with the most sensual of sights and sounds; a whole host of spectacular happenings and irresistible possibilities. Don a dazzling mask and get lost in the crowd, and become what you choose, for a night, for a moment, for an experience, an adventure, and exploration, and then in an instant disappear once more like a ghost into the pulsing ecstasy of the Dance, to once again become what you will.



Full line-up to unfold...


Sarah Olivier - If all the world's oceans were champagne, and the stars were a million winking eyes all vying to take you home - that's the vast and ravishing sound of Sarah Olivier and her formidable band. Operatic rhythm and blues with a streak of cabaret and all the passion and pathos of the chanson of their native land. Sarah is a captivating and unpredictable storm of sensuality over impossibly and irresistibly driving bass, hypnotic drums, and seductively swaggering guitar and sax. Rip-roaring rock 'n' roll has never been sexier.


Rumpsteppers - Esteemed maestros of the decks, these gentlemen spin tunes from a vast array of styles and eras, all mixed deftly and astonishingly adorned with a maelstrom of vocal gymnastics. Never was a dance floor so dastardly delectable.


Chivaree Circus - The bizarre and the beautiful; the profound and the confounding; Chivaree Circus presents a freakish fête of feats to astonish and amaze. 


Feral and Frolic - Everybody knows that theatregoers of old paid top dollar for the boxes due to the privacy such an enclave affords, and therefore the misdemeanors to be enjoyed therein. In a return to tradition the enchantresses of Feral and Frolic bring you the most invigorating of installations, the most tantalising temptations for your sinful satisfaction.


The Celestial SalonHigh above the roaring thoroughfare and whirling crowds, up in the gods where the smoke gathers and the stars seem almost within reach you may discover that some said stars have fallen and oh, how enticingly their sounds and song shall play upon your unsuspecting ears.

Dila Vardar and Djanan Turan - Formidable figures from London's folk scene, these two bring traditional Turkish music onto festival stages with all the shimmer and sass of the rock goddesses they invoke. East meets West, old meets new, and these queenly frontwomen join forces for one magical evening of magnificent music.

Leonie Evans and Garance Louis - Blues and jazz maestro, and multi-instrumentalist Leonie Evans, alongside virtuosic accordionist and cosmic musette, Garance Louis. Their combined repertoires whirl you around the world with all the smokey shadows of faraway speakeasies, the glamour and heartbreak of Parisian summer nights, and feral romance of every starlit dancefloor from Havana to New Orleans.

The Last Tuesday Costume Competition - How much do you want to win? Will you wear the dress your grandmother was buried in?
