Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can
Though The Great Gatsby highlighted the emptiness in the life of a socialite, the part which seems to have inspired most people since it was first written was the concept of Gatsby's parties. Get yourself some flapper headpieces and cocktails and dance the Charleston while trying not to get polio.

Immersive event organisers the Directors of the Extraordinary are putting on an event of their own with everything you'd want from a 1920s soiree and more. Hosted at Cloudland, The Gatsby Gamble is a two hour hosted game experience that includes light finger food and canapés, an alcoholic drink on arrival and Gatsby gambling chips for the evening.

Great Gatsby 1920s Charleston Flapper Dance Gambling Casino Party Immersive Functional Theatre
One hundred years in the making

They invite you to step back in time for one night only into a roaring twenties casino. Mystery, bribery and hidden puzzles await. You get to choose your own adventure in a game of wits and strategy. This isn't just a fancy dress party, this is a fully immersive experience like no other.

This is an exclusive invite to Gatsby's private gallery, where you will find yourself drawn into the thrill of an unfolding mystery. It's been structured to facilitate different levels of participation so that guests are challenged to both solve the mystery around his famed art collection and gamble their way to a "purse" that can be used in the public auction at the end of the evening. That's the beauty of this kind of event, you can enjoy it on a surface level taking in the surrounds and nursing some cocktails, or you can get fully submerged in the environment, seeking out the mysteries which lie before you.

It's a one off event, so get your glad rags on and enjoy an excuse to dress up for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
