Great Gatsby comes to Chigwell

If you love dressing up in Chigwell, Woodford and Loughton you are going to love the Great Gatsby Themed Night at the Hallmark Hotel London Chigwell Prince Regent, Manor Rd, Chigwell, within walking distance from Woodford tube station. From Friday 6th September to Saturday 7th September so get on your Roaring Twenties glad rags and turn back time.

The Great Gatsby (first a novel by Scott Fitzgerald) was set in the Jazz Age it vividly captures its historical moment: the economic boom of post-war America, the new jazz music and free-flowing illegal liquor. Fitzgerald later remarked that the book was an essay about the era, it was “a whole race going hedonistic, deciding on pleasure.” 

The Great Gatsby was finished in early 1925 while Fitzgerald was living in France, and Scribner’s published it in April the same year. While he considered The Great Gatsby his greatest achievement at the time it was published, the book was neither a critical nor commercial success. The novel was however rediscovered later and enjoyed exponential growth in popularity in the 1950s. It ended up becoming a standard text on most US high-school curricula. It remains one of Scribner’s bestsellers, and it is now considered a masterpiece of American fiction. The book has been adapted to film several times most notably a production directed by Jack Clayton in 1974, starring Robert Redford as Gatsby, and then in 2013, the version directed by Baz Luhrmann starred Leonardo DiCaprio.

If you love a bit of dressing up and enjoy the freedom of the Roaring Twenties the Hallmark Hotel London Chigwell Prince Regent is the perfect setting to indulge yourself. The A-listed Georgian house and the converted chapel has extensive gardens and grounds and is very close to the 6,000-acre Epping Forest. Situated on the outskirts of Greater London, with excellent access to the M11 and M25 you could just come and party then explore the Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford areas.
