We’re excited to announce our very first Great Gatsby night, on Friday 2nd November 2018.

Back in the 1920’s the USA had prohibition. This was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages from 1920 to 1933. Whilst the ban did result in reducing the overall consumption of alcohol across the country, it also lead to the upsurge in criminal gangs who were able to gain control of the beer and liquor supply for many cities.

Private ownership and consumption of alcohol were not made illegal under federal law, but local laws were stricter in many areas, with some states banning possession outright. Private parties flourished, especially those held by Jay Gatsby at his mansion on Long Island. (It is speculated, but never confirmed, that Gatsby took advantage of Prohibition by making a fortune from bootlegging and built connections with various gangsters.)

Come and join us at Prested as we embrace the feeling of decadence and intemperance of the prohibition era.  It’s a time for dressing up – sharp suits and flapper dresses, long cigarette holders and feathers. We’ll have gambling, drinking, dancing, authentic live swing band and a hog roast for an evening to remember!

£45pp – tickets available now, don’t miss out. Call 01376 573300 to book (£10 deposit, balance due one month before).
