Sassy, & Blah in particular, were the legendary east London club nights of my twenties and early thirties. They were a family affair, open to all, & DJd by good friends, and were always happy, happy nights out. We even had Wedding Blah, when Dave & Jene got hitched. After the ceremony at Islington Town Hall, and a moderately civilised reception, we all hoofed it down to the old warehouse building behind Angel to dance up a storm in our wedding finery. I was the official wedding photographer, & still have a photo of Dave in whistle & Jene in wedding dress dancing on the stacks. *sprints to albums*. A HA.

That was some wedding after-party.

And now it’s time for a re-tread. And this time it’s even more special, because it’s being thrown in aid of a cause dear to all of my friends’ hearts. Seven years ago Rachel & Andrew Canter lost their baby Jake, our dear friend Emma’s nephew, in wholly avoidable circumstances, due to the nearest hospital maternity unit being closed  In his memory, they set up a registered charity, the National Maternity Support Foundation, known as Jake’s Charity, which works to improve maternity care, stop the closure of maternity units and, given that it is Jake’s charity, improve bereavement counselling following the death of a baby.

So, if you are free on the 27th, and fancy some great house, a room of smiling faces, and a whole lot of dancing, come on down to the Bells of Shoreditch…
