CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Black Tie and Tales archiveBlack Tie and Tales tells the outrageously comic story of a black tie bash seen through the eyes of Bagley Hall's cynical and truculent staff. It's Upstairs Downstairs turned inside out! From the moment the guests arrive the staff are on hand with a glass of Champagne and a sweaty armpit. It the canapés are sweet the wit will be sour! It's an evening of total sophistication, the men are all tuxedoed, the ladies drip diamonds, you simply can't move for fake tan, bucks fizz and cummerbunds! The Dixie band has arrived, the raffle is ready, the disco's for later and the places are set. But the guest speaker is speechless, the wives are restless, the soup is cold and the pheasant is off. Come ten o'clock though these movers and shakers, move and shake, as the sophistication slips and the demons come out!
