A Glittering Night Of Disco

Dora Loewenstein, whom I have had the pleasure of working with on various Stones book projects, is one the prime movers behind an annual fundraiser for Save The Children at the Roundhouse in London. Since 2012 the evening has raised huge amounts for the charity. Each year focuses on a different musical genre. For the 2015 event, held on 5th March, the theme was disco, and as in all the previous years I was delighted to be invited to write the copy for the brochure for the evening. There was a wonderful line-up of acts, including Heatwave who kicked off proceedings and got the place moving with an infectious version of ‘Boogie Nights’ (photo above), Sister Sledge, Philip Bailey and Jimmy Somerville – I particularly loved Jimmy’s quote, “There’s a massive glitter ball in my head and it has never stopped turning.” The guests had made a real effort to come in suitable attire, and turned the Roundhouse floor into a timewarp of suitably hedonistic retro fashion. The evening raised £1.3 million for Save The Children.
