Fitzroy 1920…Gunmen, Sly Grog, Prostitution, Extortion, Cocaine, Gang Wars and Vice…but most of all, Fun!

Join Pop-Up Events for their third annual Squizzy Taylor's Ball…an amazing evening of stage shows and interactive theatre in the truly magnificent Cathedral Hall in Fitzroy…transformed into a 1920's secret Speakeasy and brothel…with actors playing Squizzy Taylor; his partner in crime Henry Stokes, the legendary Two-Up King of 1920's Melbourne; Squizzy's girlfriend and brothel Madame Dolly Grey; his two young street urchins and apprentice pickpockets, and a host of gang members, gunmen, working girls and extras…

Featuring stage shows throughout the evening…Acrobats, Dancers, Songstresses, Aerial Artistes, Vaudevillians, Strongmen, Jazz Bands, naughtiness, mischief and a little bit of madness…

Dance to sensational Jazz and Dixieland tunes as the dance floor is opened up in between performances…have a drink at the sly grog tent with the celebrity gangsters of Fitzroy's underworld…whisper the secret password to the gunman at the door to enter the illicit backyard Two-Up school…and listen in as Squizzy and Henry tell of their latest plans to expand their empire…while always staying several steps ahead of the police!

Gangsters and Flappers at last years Squizzy Taylor's Ball!

Complimentary glass of Bubbles waiting for you on arrival, free finger food between 7pm and 9pm and a fabulous food stall with vegetarian options.

All the usual alcoholic delights from the three pop-up bars…including a sly grog tent fitted out with vintage props and a dedicated cocktail bar stocked with delicious 1920's cocktails!
