La Jefa's Speakeasy 
Saturday 15.12.2018

La Jefa's Speakeasy - An illicit establishment will turn KulttuuriKulma into a 20's themed Speakeasy, directly to the times of prohibition where the music is swinging, the dancing wild and the people are dazzling! Come and enjoy the music, dance your feet numb, have a prohibited sip of bubbly and let the night take you to the roaring 20's!

You may dress according to the theme if you feel like it.
