LogoAll sparkle and glamour as the roaring 20’s came to London’s The Brewery for Affiliate Window’s 8th annual black tie gala, The Curiosity Club.

Greeted by flapper girls surrounding a 1929 Rolls Royce Phantom, 500 of the industry’s finest were welcomed into the hive of activity that was The Curiosity Club. Themed as an exclusive prohibition club, the night provided the perfect setting for advertiser and publisher networking including brands such as Talktalk, Red Letter Days & Boden.

Throughout dinner, the entertainment wowed the crowds with graceful aerial silk performers, a breath-taking acrobalance act and high energy dance troupe. This followed on through to the afterparty with the ladies enjoying being reinvented by the 20’s styling parlour, and the men having a little gamble on the blackjack table. As the clock struck 12, the beautiful Jolie gave us an enticing midnight surprise.310B5651

Keeping with tradition, the party carried a charitable spirit with guests kindly donating over £3100 to the Encephalitis Society, a charity very close to our hearts. Thank you kindly to everyone who made a donation to this very worthwhile cause.
