THIS YEAR’S THEME
You’ll be shaken and stirred! Guests can expect a captivating evening inspired by the classic James Bond films. Prepare for an evening spent savouring the finer things in life – martinis, fine wine, exceptional cuisine, fine art, and a special treat – a series of sensational burlesque performances.
Guests do not need to dress for the theme – but are encouraged to “dress to impress.”
