Channelling our best The Cure/ Placebo/ Republica playlist we regressed back to our childhoods for our nineties inspired theme bar: The Amy Grimehouse Team put on a trashtastic night where you could Hex your Ex and dance supercamp cabaret before taking your seats to watch a screening of “The Craft”. Needless to say cocktails were mandatory and served, we like to think, with plenty of grunge attitude and space raider crisps of course!

Next Saturday, Amy Grimehouse- East London’s favourite concept cinema sensation are screening “The Craft” at Sutton house – a Tudor Manor House in Hackney
We couldn’t help but get involved, so we are running a occult themed cocktail bar. Where we will be selling potions to punters.
I have been working on a show of late… which has absorbed all of my weekends and the wrap party was last night… so now I have my life back at least up until christmas. The theme of the party was 1940s starlet and I was in a conundrum because ever since my flatmate’s cat (and it’s fleas) took a fancy to my wardrobe I have started keeping my vintage dresses at my mum’s to avoid dry cleaning bills. Which makes spontaneous dressing up a bit problematic. I had an LBD (negligee type thing) but I wanted to look of the era and it was effectively a nightie… so in my lunch break I popped down to “Frockney Rebel”. It’s an attractive vintage shop that I have often wanted to browse when I have passed it on the bus partly because of it’s tongue in cheek name.
This was power shopping! On a time limit, a budget and with quite a specific brief.
Ten minutes and £18 later it delivered… and I was saved by a super slinky white pencil skirt, which I thought looked pretty hot even if I do say so myself.
Not a lot of stock but that can be a blessing at times and the staff are happy-go-lucky.
