Come drink, dance and revel in celebration of heartache, angst and woe, in this evening of magnificent melancholy.

Gather here all you lovelorn, you broken hearted, you jilted, you two-timed, you romantically dispossessed, you ex-inamorati and find expiation in your mutual misery. Celebrate the heartache, remembering teenage infatuation, the death of a beloved pet or perhaps the nation’s impending divorce from the EU, for The Valentine's Masquerade Ball will be taking over four floors of Soho's exclusive Century Club and will feature a wondrous cast list of London's most eerie, exotic and eccentric performers.
