WHITE MINK returns to BRIGHTON for a very classy one-off pop-up NYE party.
We are excited to announce that we will be taking over all 4 floors (the entire venue) of a sumptuous newly restored pub, dining room and venue in the very heart of Brighton's Lanes. THE WALRUS opened earlier this year (from the same people behind the Lion and Lobster) and has been beautifully renovated retaining bags of vintage charm and includes a basement live room and dance floor, lots of nooks and crannies, gorgeous dining rooms, and a massive rooftop smoking area. It has been beautifully done and is the perfect backdrop for a spectacular NYE.
☆ We will be adding the full line up here very soon but BE WARNED... this will be The HOTTEST TICKET in town this NYE. Expect multiple rooms with several bands, a variety of DJs, Tarot and Palm readings, classic cocktails, close-up Magic and much much more.
☆ In addition to this, for those that really want to do New Years in fine style (and I know this includes myself!), we are offering a three course set menu for dinners (the food is delicious!) that includes White Mink tickets. There are just 90 covers and these are expected to disappear very VERY quickly!
As ever, we will be bringing the classic White Mink sounds and style of the 1920s and 30s to the party, turning them upside down and smuggling them into... well, next year at the very least.
BOOK NOW... this event is VERY LIKELY to sell out quickly.

A halloween spectacular!
Saturday 28 October 2017
Early Bird £15
Imagine the ghosts of a forgotten ballroom that reappears just once each year. Rising up out of the fog on Worthing Pier, White Mink turns the glamorous jazz age sounds and style of the 20s and 30s upside down and smuggles them back into the 21st century.
Little Violet bring their heady cocktail of swinging bass lines and dirty beats, mixed with contagious melodies & a dash of class. Natty Congeroo will be bringing his flamboyant and exotic Flames of Rhythm to town. Hot Jazz, Harlem Swing, Rhythm ’n’ Blues and Gospel from the golden era by the quite simply the most authentic and exciting band in the UK - possibly in the world. Sophie Page Hall will be performing circus death defying circus feats on the aerial silks... With "suave impressario" DJ Nick Hollywood spinning the tunes and bringing the visuals.
