Lost Vagueness Brings On The ‘Night Of The Vaguely Dead’
August 31, 2006, Press Dispensary.
A ghoulish horror-fest at the Coronet, Elephant and Castle, London, October 28, 2006
Summoning the dead, undead, vampires, witches, ghosts and any other lost souls, Lost Vagueness
, master of eccentric entertainment, is staging a monster mash of a bash to celebrate Halloween amongst ghoul-friends, at the Coronet, Elephant and Castle, London, on Saturday October 28.
The scary all-nighter promises to be swamped with freaks and zombies: special effect make-up artists will be on hand to cut off fingers, sew heads back on and drip blood from death defying wounds, while the style witches will bring outfits back from the dead and dress guests to look even more disgusting than usual. The Invisible Circus will be operating the Freak Boutique for those not acquainted with true nastiness and the Hate Booth will be open all night for masochistic thrill seekers. Throughout the night, guests will be sacrificed, ahem, entertained by a host of terrifying performers and dead or dying bands (line up to be confirmed). Liver tossing and pumpkin passing will be de rigueur and the Casino, where guests can try their hand at blackjack and roulette, will be rewarding heavy gamblers with revolting prizes.
The Night of the Vaguely Dead takes place from 10pm to 6am on Saturday 28 October, 2006. Tickets cost £25.00 plus booking fee from Access All Areas at www.onlinestall.com

Notes for editors
About Lost Vagueness
Lost Vagueness started in 1998 as a casino after originating from an illicit bar on the outskirts of Glastonbury Festival. The original irony of travellers in top hats is now overshadowed by the sheer quality of the show: however the grassroots humour remains the same to this day. As well as running the only field in Glastonbury’s history to be closed due to overcrowding in 2003 and proving a big success at Glasto 2004 and 2005, Lost Vagueness has staged its own events at Strawberry Fair (Cambridge), Stokefest (Stoke Newington) and The Coronet (London). It also showcased a selection of acts at The Lovebox festival in Victoria Park, The Electric Picnic Boutique Festival in Ireland 2005 and 2006, the Big Chill in 2006, and ran its own festival near Lewes, East Sussex, in late summer 2004 and 2005. The Lost Weekend festival intended for June 2006 was cancelled at the last minute when its financial backer pulled out.
Lost Vagueness was formed as a company in 2003, assisted by Arts Council of England funding.
About the Coronet
The Coronet, which benefited from a £2 million refurbishment programme in 2004, has retained many of its original art deco features. Formerly an ABC Cinema, which closed in 1999, and a theatre prior to that guise, the venue has long been renowned for its association with Charlie Chaplin who lived nearby and appeared on stage in its early days. Now, the refurbished 572-seater auditorium hosts live music, product launches, conferences, club nights and film screenings. The Coronet is at 28 New Kent Road, London SE1 6TJ.
