Bollywood Theme for Mayor’s Charity Ball

Date Released - 22/02/2024

BOLLYWOOD comes to Tameside for the Civic Mayor’s charity ball which takes place at  Dukinfield Town Hall on Saturday, March 2.

Entertainment will be provided by the multi-award-winning Ri Ri’s Dance Academy; Dhol Drummers and pioneer of UK Bhangra music, Joga Singh; and the menu features authentic Indian food (including vegetarian option) as well as a more traditional choice.

The Civic Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Tafheen Sharif, said: “Bringing Tameside’s communities together is something that means a great deal to me.

“My charity Bollywood ball is going to be an amazing night, a really special occasion where people can meet and enjoy the Bollywood experience with good food and top-class entertainment while helping some very good causes that are close to my heart.

“I hope we can pack the place because it’s going to be a one-off for Tameside this year.”

The evening starts with a drinks reception at 6.30, followed by the formal dinner at 7.15. Tickets are £45 each. Dress is dinner jacket, lounge suit or cultural attire.
