// Drama Parlour’s ‘Mad March Hair’ party @ The Dundee Arms (3)

The Drama Parlour is the kind of hair salon that makes you excited to get your hair cut. They are relatively new to Bethnal Green and have taken up residence directly above The Dundee Arms – it must be a blossoming friendship because this is where they are hosting their party. The Drama Parlour will not be cutting at this event, but if you want to let your hair down regardless then turn up on Thurs 10 March – DJ duo Wild Fantasy will be doing their thing and creating pleasant vibes.
