Costume BallUnique costume ball on Saturday 4th March 2017 at The Lowry Hotel.

Join us to recreate history and raise funds for people affected by cancer. This event is based on one of the region’s most glamorous historic events from 1828 where generous philanthropists of the North West attended an extravagant costume ball to raise money for local charity. Prominent citizens at the 19th century celebration included the Lord Mayor, MPs, industrial magnates and the Home Secretary Robert Peel. The scene was captured by artist Arthur Perigal and is a social record of the ‘cream of Manchester society’.
Tickets include entertainment, a three course dinner, DJ, disco, singer, raffle and auction and are £99 per person.
Dress code : Period Dress
The event is being supported by The Royal Exchange Costume Department which cover all historical periods. A reduced rate is being offered of £45 for hire of a costume which includes all accessories, boots and hats.
Guests are also welcome to attend the event in their own period dress.
Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends.
Designed by world-renowned architect Lord Norman Foster and opened in April 2016, Maggie’s Manchester is a warm and welcoming place set in the grounds of the Christie Hospital. Help is offered freely to anyone with any type of cancer and no appointment or referral is necessary to visit the Centre – you can just drop in any time.
Emotional support might involve a one-to-one or group session with a clinical psychologist, stress reduction and relaxation workshops, or art therapy and creative writing courses. Practical support might include advice about benefits and eating well; specialist support for managing hair loss and skin care during and after treatment – courses such as ‘Getting Started’, for people who are newly diagnosed; or ‘Where Now?’ for those adjusting to life after cancer. Social support comes from the people who work in and visit Maggie’s Centres, the supportive community around each kitchen table of people who understand what it is to be living with cancer.
Maggie’s Manchester can be found on Kinnaird Road, Withington, M20 4QU. For more information go to www.maggiescentres.org/manchester or call (0161) 641 4848.
