There will be musical entertainment, charity auction and dinner.

Ball Organiser, Deborah Johnston, said: “ Tickets for this year’s event are selling fast and I would advise people to contact me as soon as possible to book theirs as this year’s Ostara Ball promises to be a great success.’

The evening at the prestigious South Lodge Hotel will commence with a champagne reception followed by a delicious three course dinner with entertainment provided by Marco the Magician and ‘Monte Carlo Nights’ casino. After dinner, a well-known personality will entertain with a brief talk followed by an auction of exciting and valuable gifts with Rupert Toovey at the gavel, before dancing begins to music provided by local band ‘Sound Investment’.

The Ostara Ball is the flagship fundraising event for Age UK Horsham District. There are now approximately 26,000 residents aged over 65 throughout the Horsham district and the money raised from this event will enable the charity to continue to provide vital support to local older people.
