Seductive Alchemy – New Year in London

Posted by on December 23rd,2007


Seems to be the season for events, and if you’ve yet to commit yourself to other arrangements, and you quite like the sound of seeing the New Year in surrounded by costumed, masked, revellers in the Steampunk style, then perhaps the Seductive Alchemy event in London is for you?

The House of Wheat, ARTHOUSEPARTY, Zombies Ate My Brain and Unit 7 are all combining to create an evening that firmly declares itself to be Steampunk themed – with a strict no-mask, no-entry policy and a B.Y.O.E. understanding (Bring Your Own Experiment).  They advise to think Absinthe fairies, mad scientists, gentleman adventurers and human lab-rats – which sounds marvellous.  I’ve not found as much information as I might like, but it’ll run from 10pm to 10am, starts on the 31st of December in the Cable Street Studios, London, and they have DJ’s, Steampunk Punch and Judy, and pedal-powered cinema lined up.  It sounds very decadent indeed.

If I didn’t have other arrangements, I’d be rather tempted to try it out (any excuse for a nice Steampunk mask, of course) but if someone else should go – do let me know how it plays out.  Thank you very much, Mr NK Guy!
