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.
