Have Mercy On This Masquerade

Surbiton. Famous for a rather dashing art deco train station and being a byword for suburbia. But we've been tipped off about a good thing happening there, in late summer, involving dressing up, lush consumption, a big old party and raising money for a very worthwhile cause. Here's the lowdown:

  • There's a masked ball happening, Friday 31st July.
  • It's a fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Society. Yes, we know you worry about your short term memory - here's a chance to do something about it in a roundabout, partying kind of way.
  • Tickets are £35 and get you champagne on arrival, a three course dinner with wine plus music and dancing entertainment - there's even an optional dance lesson. Once the ball breaks even, the charity gets the cash so come on people, roll up, roll up.
  • It's at fancy schmancy Glenmore House, a fine example "of the architectural transition from late Georgian to the early Victorian". You might learn something. Or get drunk and pretend you're landed gentry to the manor born.
  • You've never been to Surbiton, have you? Bout time you did and this is a great excuse. The Alzheimer's Society needs your support.
  • Convinced? We are. A brilliant excuse to dolly up, hide your face and fearlessly frolic whilst indulging your philanthropic side too. Get your tickets from Jenny; email Jennifer.Scillitoe@lgcforensics.com or call 07740 466 534. Pass it on.
