The Prohibition Party - Devizes’ best kept secret…

Ssssh! Don't tell everyone! 
 You are invited to enjoy some brilliant music, lively company and vintage cocktails at the Devizes Food and Drink Festival 'Speakeasy'.You can indulge in the glamour of a bygone era, for one night only on Friday 20th May.

Harking back to the days of the roaring twenties, at the Devizes 'Speakeasy' you can experience the thrills of partying during the prohibition.

There will be canapés and a selection of eight, deliciously wicked cocktails from the era of guys and molls the likes of which you've never tasted before! Or maybe one or two of you have - the grapevine tells me that some folks in Devizes are pretty partial to the old 'Alabama Cocaine', innocently consuming it under another name in years gone by - but the wraps are off now.

And if you're in a mood for living dangerously try the 'Cuba Libre' or the 'Tikky-Peeky', but book a cab home guys!

For more sensible folks there'll be Shirley Temples and other fruity delights.

The Prohibition Party will give you the chance to step back in time and enjoy at first hand a decade that is more fabulous than you can imagine.

Just to keep things respectable, we'll be drawing a raffle for the Mayor's Fund
and rumour has it that some pretty important people will be there. 
(Just don't ask them where they've been for the last 12 months!)

Entrance is by exclusive ticket and provides you with canapés* and three free cocktails. Further cocktail tokens will be available for you to purchase on the night. 

Dress code? Think 1920s glamour, 
look to Bugsy Malone, Boardwalk Empire and The Great Gatsby for inspiration! 
Buy your tickets now before they run out!
