Competition: Win Tickets and a Picnic to Legally Blonde!


A Night at the 43

20 May 2022 The National Archives

Something exciting is happening at The National Archives… 

After dark, 1920s London transformed. It was a place effervescent with outrageous parties and scandalous nightclubs – none more so than the 43 Club on Gerrard Street, owned by the notorious ‘Nightclub Queen’ of Soho, Kate Meyrick. 

Get ready for an exclusive trip back to the glitz and glamour of Kate’s 43 Club, recreated for one night only, in collaboration with The Candlelight Club.  

Featuring live cabaret, jazz music and DJ sets, and curated cocktails and food from Maids of Honour – the night is set to be abuzz with 20s frivolity. Catch a Charleston performance and chat to Kate and her staff to discover more about her misadventures with the celebrities, royalty, gangsters, and bright young things she partied with.  

This event will also provide ticket holders with exclusive glimpses into The National Archives’ exhibition, The 1920s: Beyond the Roar, as it is brought to life for the night. 

Be sure to bring your friends and get involved in the 1920s theme –gladrags are highly encouraged! 

Please note: this event is strictly 18+
