We can cater for all dietary requirements, simply alert us to your needs when booking.

We encourage you to pre-order drinks where possible for the smooth running of the evening.

Fundraising - Your support matters

We are so grateful for your support in attending our fundraising events.

On the evening itself we will run a fundraising prize draw and a sealed bid auction, with all funds raised supporting Hippodrome Projects.

Our aim for the night is to raise £5,000 towards our work in education, access and outdoor arts with vulnerable and hard-to-reach communities.
