There’s still time to get your hands on a ticket to the best party in Suffolk in 2015 – but be quick as there’s only a handful remaining!

Join us in The Hangar at Kesgrave Hall on Friday, May 8th, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of VE Day with a fabulous party.

From the moment you arrive at Kesgrave Hall – and we’re encouraging the use of military vehicles and classic cars for an eye-catching arrival! – you’ll know this is going to be a party people will be talking about for years to come.

Decked out on military uniform, 1940s attire or classic black tie, guests will enjoy a live rendition of Beating the Retreat by The Band of the Parachute Regiment during the Champagne reception, before tucking into a delicious three-course dinner in our street party style table setting. Don’t worry though, there’ll be no rationing in our menu!

We also have a 1940s’ singer, exhibition dancers, 11-piece Big Band and DJ to keep you entertained throughout the night – as well as ‘late-night rations’ at 1.30am to keep everyone’s strength up!

Not only will this exclusive event mark the anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe, the party will also be raising funds for The Soldiers’ Charity in the process.

Tickets are available for just £120 per person. Call the Kesgrave Hall switchboard on 01473 333741 today to book your place or email [email protected].
