    Shrewsbury School Parents' Association proudly present "Lara's Ball"

    Please click on the image above
    to open up a brochure giving full details of the Ball


    Following on from the sell-out success of last year's "Ball of Siam", the theme for this year is from Russia with love - "Lara's Ball".  Shrewsbury School Parents' Association invite you to enter the sumptuous world of the Imperial Russian Court at the Winter Palace, for an evening of fine food, wine and entertainment that promises to be an unforgettable experience.  The same team who created the Ball of Siam are creating Lara's Ball, which many described as quite simply "the best Ball they had ever attended!"

    Tickets cost £70 a head and this includes a plentiful Champagne and Canapé Reception, a delicious Russian-inspired gourmet dinner, and extensive entertainment.

    At SSPA events our aim is to maximise time for parents to interact and socialise and there will be no further solicitation for monies at this event - e.g. Raffles/Auctions etc. We are a not-for-profit organisation; any surplus made will be donated to a chosen charity and/or help towards future events.

    Places are limited, so do please get your requests in early. Tickets can be purchased as tables of 12 or individually.  We will attempt to seat individual couples with others from their Houses, where requested. 

    Please contact Dawn Dunn at reception@shrewsbury.org.uk or phone 01743 280500 for your booking form.

    We are very grateful to the companies who have generously sponsored this event.
