The 1940s themed Glemham Victory Ball will take place in a specially erected marquee during their May exhibition weekend. The event is being billed as an incredible night of 40's glamour, style and retro- extravaganza.

Art for Cure founder Belinda Gray said: "We are delighted to announce the Glorious Glemham Victory Ball for May 2020. Organised by an elite team of event planners, it promises to be a celebration to remember with a thrilling night of 40's entertainment, 'Glorious Glemham' arrival cocktails, a gourmet four-course dinner from the famed chef Peter Harrison, an auction of 'money-can't buy' prizes which will include an epic flight in an original World War II Spitfire and much more."

The ball will take place on Saturday May 9, 2020 and there will be limited ticket availability. The dress code will be black tie and a touch of 1940's glamour.

Belinda said: "This is a fundraising evening for Art For Cure and you will be helping to fund vital national breast cancer research as well as services for those facing a breast cancer diagnosis here in Suffolk.
