Gothic Christmas Special

Rotherhithe December 2011

Gingerline Classic

Past the ivy and through the miniature doorway guests clambered, before making their descent into a dark underground chamber – the old entrance to the Thames Tunnel. This shaft set the scene for a nostalgic performance harking a return to a dark Victorian past. Afterwards, Lord Ginger and Lady Line beckoned guests back to the dining hall to partake in a festive gothic feast of four sumptious courses amongst candelabras, black velvet, baubles and the spirits of Christmas past with nary a turkey in sight.
