Tuesday 2 May 2014 - The Globe
Hi all Rags Revival enthusiasts, As Promised we are hosting our second Rags Revival Swishing Event on Friday 2nd May but, this time we will be just down the road at The Globe Pub. We have our own space again downstairs (and our own bar horahhh.) The room is slightly bigger with quirky chesterfield chairs, rustic tables and fairy lights - I have attached some pictures for you to gander at! We loved the intimacy of the last event and are conscious that we want to keep that, so fear not! It is still very central at 77-78 Middle Street, Brighton, BN1 1AL. £5 Entry, Max of 10 items! The time of the event has slightly changed to 5pm - 9pm so we will be getting our swish on slightly earlier. Most of you had finished and wrapped up by 9pm so this shouldn't be a problem. There is an event called Transmission in the same room at 10pm which is some great music (new and old) and has some fantastic drink deals on, so feel free to have a dance after your swish! Hopefully we will see your beautiful faces on the 2nd of May and bring all your friends! The more people there the more choice for everyone.Remember if you have any tokens left over from the last event ...bring them!! We will have extra mirrors this time and same rules apply - if you need a refresher they are now on our website http://swishing.wix.com/rags-revival#!up-coming-events/c15f0 Laura Phillips & Chloe Jones Rags Revival Brighton https://www.facebook.com/ragsrevival http://swishing.wix.com/rags-revival
