On Saturday 20th October 2018 the Zoological Society of East Anglia will be hosting Banham Zoo’s 50th Anniversary Charity Ball, and we would be delighted if you could join us for this glittering, big cat-themed black tie event.
Guests will walk along the red carpet to a drinks reception at 6.30pm followed by a delicious 3-course dinner. The evening’s entertainment will include a charity auction, DJ and music to dance the night away and a few surprises. The event is being held at Dunston Hall, Norwich, an Elizabethan-style four-star luxury hotel set in 150 acres of parkland – the perfect setting for this fantastic evening.
We will be auctioning off several amazing and unique items, and we are extremely pleased to have the support of Elizabeth Talbot MRICS from T.W. Gaze in Diss, and on-screen valuer for BBC TV’s “Flogit!” & “Bargain Hunt”, as our auctioneer for the evening.
This is one of ZSEA’s major fundraising events of the year and all funds raised during the evening will go directly to the Wildcat Conservation Alliance’s “Kerinci Seblat Sumatran Tiger Protection and Conservation” project.
