Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are delighted to convene you to our 20th Anniversary Ball! May all you zozzled flappers and eggs get ready for our cat’s meow Ball ever. Come and make whoopee during this 1920s Speakeasy experience in the ethereal Botanical Gardens. Cast away your troubles and indulge yourself in a night of luxury for our niftiest ball to date! Put the Volstead Act to the side and get ossified for a bee’s knees evening, transporting you to the Harlem Cotton Club to discover your inner hoofer.

Dud up, put your glad rags and get a wiggle on for this unique opportunity, but be ready when tickets are released, you will not horn in. The kale for tickets is £55 and includes a gourmet 3 course meal; complimentary champagne, wine & giggle water; musical performances; a jitney to and from the venue and many surprises to be announced, no baloney.

Pickup: 6:30-6:45PM (time TBC) from Campus or in Leamington Spa.

Dress code: black tie

Tickets will go live on Friday 2nd February at 5.30pm.
