Heartbreakers Ball... A Valentine's HappeningPast, The Screen Fri 14 Feb, 8pm–12am
Enter a scene: small town American prom circa 1950 (or is it 80?). A band lulls in the corner, love films play on loop, cherry pie is served, punch drunk, corsages wilt, the drag head announces your slow dance… you’re invited to prom, but not as you know it.
Come alone, bring your clique, bring your lover … leave you with your soulmate.
Dress like you’re at a lonely prom in a film directed by David Lynch or maybe John Walters.
Comperes: LaPelles Factory
Your headmistress and her assistant will be in charge, making sure everyone keeps in line and that there’s no funny business.
Live Music: Cream with a K
Cream with a K, aka Lee Tatlock, brings a unique blend of 90’s fuzzy Grunge rock with hypnotic guitar licks, sticky sweet synth lines and her signature ethereal vocals.
Performance: Cacator and the Sirens
In a special performance, our homecoming queens of heartbreak, Cacator and the Sirens, will lament loves lost.
It’s the time of the night you’ve been waiting for. The music slows, you’ve secretly written down your crush’s name – now will the headmistress announce your slow dance?
Attempt to capture the magic of prom with our ill-tempered photographer.
Want to make prom night extra special? Reserve a table for up to 8 people, and we will keep topping up your own private punch bowl.
