We entered into 2020 in glitter, sequins, gold and feathers and with the beats of Fleetwood Mac being played onto a black and white checkered dance floor. This New Year’s Eve we brought Studio 54 to Londolozi! Studio 54 has a link to Londolozi, and so this story created the theme for the evening and also was the basis of the play narrated by Duncan MacLarty after main course. The story goes as follows:
In the summer of 1979 Dave and John Varty teamed up Fleetwood Mac, Cheryl Tiegs and artist Peter Beard to raise money to relocate elephants in South Africa. They attempted to do this by hosting an event at the hottest nightclub in the world, Studio 54! This was known as the “Buy An Elephant Party”. Although the event didn’t create as much profit as anticipated, the topic of live elephant relocation was exposed to powerful and influential people, which ended up helping the cause. To pay tribute to this event and as well as the excuse to dress up in 70’s gear, we chose Studio 54 as 2019’s theme.
Happy New Year to our extended Londolozi Family, we hope you enjoy the images of our festive evening below:
