They Say: You like avant-garde performance if it’s good. You also like Girls Aloud.
Sometimes you fancy a Fanta Tropical and eat sushi from a supermarket if you’re in a rush. You also probably fancy the same-sex, or at least are ‘Very Liberal’ about it (and have experimented a few times – whatevs). You use the word whatevs more often than you think you do. You like it when there’s a sequin or two. You studied an arts degree. You don’t take it all too seriously. But seriously enough. Hi.
A soriée of excellence for those with the most distinguished of tastes!
Join the Figs in Wigs for a jolly jamboree featuring performances from Josh(Tina) Breach & Figs in Wigs, plus themed DJ slots, line dancing and scotch eggs!!

They Say: The Avengers’ Emma Peel is one of British T.V.’s most iconic female characters, sophisticated, self reliant and as sexy as a summer afternoon making languid love in the country house of your dreams.
Lit by vintage oil wheels and infused with a psychedelic baroque finesse. Mrs. Peel features a grooving live band, a superb dance floorshow, fantastic visuals culled from rare period movies and exquisite cocktails that reflect each evening’s carefully honed theme.
