The Charleston Ball in 1926 was a spectacular night of dancing that went through the night ending at 5 am. With spectacular prizes included a trip to Paris on Imperial Airways and cases of John Jameson's 'Three Star' Whiskey. With Fred Astaire as one of the judges, and performances from London's answer to Josephine Baker - the cabaret dancer and singer Florence Mills, impresario Lew Grade was crowned as the World Charleston Champion.
