The Friends of Worth are delighted to invite you to their Casablanca Ball being held on Saturday 6th May 2017. For one night only Worth will be transformed into a bar in North Africa full of 1940s glamour and intrigue – an oasis of Moroccan fun to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the film.  As well as dinner and dancing, there will be cocktails, a casino, an auction and a Tree of Wishes, as well as a pianist and a photographer to capture the spirit of the evening. Tickets are £80 per person. To book go to the Friends of Worth page on the Worth School website to the section headed ‘Casablanca Ball 2017’, and if you book a table of 10 by 24th March, there’ll be a bottle of prosecco waiting for you to help get the party started.
