This month, we’re going glitzy. Our London Late for November takes you to the opulence of the Rivoli Ballroom in south London. Join us as we team up with Hacked Off Films to bring you an unforgettable night of film and dance.

Hosted at the Rivoli Ballroom, a beautifully preserved 1950s dance hall decked out in wall-to-wall red velvet, be dazzled by sparkling chandeliers, exotic Chinese lanterns and a blue domed ceiling overhead. Formerly a picture house, we’re taking the Rivoli back to its cinematic roots with a unique event combining film and dance.

Immerse yourself in the story

Hacked Off Film’s unique events bring the action on screen into real life; creating an truly immersive cinema experience.

Throughout the night you will be treated to a variety of professional dance performances as well as encounters with characters from the film Strictly Ballroom. You’ll also have the chance to live the ballroom dream and become a dancer yourself.

Guests will be pampered back-stage in the Lady’s Parlour, learn some ballroom basics and have the chance to show off their skills and sparkles in front of our very own panel of judges. Before enjoying an enhanced screening of this Baz Luhrmann classic. Following the film it’s dancing til’ late at the Strictly Rivoli disco.

A star-studded history

The extraordinary original 1950s Art Deco interiors of the Rivoli Ballroom are unique in London, but you may recognise them from the many music videos and films shot there. The Rivoli has played host to numerous big names over the years: Florence + the Machine, Kings of Leon and The White Stripes have all performed here. Videos from Oasis, Lana Del Rey, Elton John and have been shot here too. Plus it’s a favourite of Strictly Come Dancing’s Len Goodman.

Strictly Rivoli Ballroom is your chance to immerse yourself in all things ballroom and guaranteed to be bags of fun.

Put your glad rags on and shimmy on down to meet us at the Rivoli - we’ll see you on the dance floor.
