FPS Summer Ball – The Great Gatsby Gala


22 June 2024


Coombe Abbey Hotel, Brinklow Road, Binley, Coventry CV3 2AB

Inspired by the golden era of Hollywood, The Great Gatsby Gala is more than just a party; it’s an immersive experience into the glitz and glam of the 1920s. Get ready to be whisked away into a world of jazz, flapper dresses, and the timeless spirit of the Gatsby era.

As the night unfolds, prepare to be dazzled by the electrifying performances of professional Charleston dancers, their swift moves and rhythmic steps transporting you to the lively era of the Roaring Twenties. Amidst this vivacity, roving artists will captivate your senses with spellbinding close-up magic and the delicate craft of silhouette art, ensuring every moment is laced with wonder and intrigue.

The ambiance of the gala will be further enriched by the rich melodies of a jazz and swing quartet, setting a tone of elegance that promises an unforgettable evening. A culinary delight awaits you as well; indulge in a sumptuous three-course meal, each dish thoughtfully paired with exquisite wines to tantalize your palate.

As you mingle, take a moment to capture the memories at our 1920’s-themed photobooth, and later, let loose to the infectious beats spun by our DJ. And in the spirit of giving, participate in our charity raffle, which not only promises amazing prizes but also supports the commendable cause of Mates in Mind. View the event invite HERE.
