ENJOY the carnival atmosphere of the Mardi Gras at the gala Star Ball.

It will take place on Saturday May 17 and raise vital fund for National Star which supports young people with complex disabilities.

“You can’t be overdressed for the Mardi Gras and we promise some great spectacles and entertainment for the evening,” said Kate Green, Director of Fundraising for National Star.

“With the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the next Olympics it is perfect to soak up that carnival atmosphere while raising money to enable young people with disabilities to live their lives to the full.”

Tickets are £85 and include a reception drink, three-course meal and entertainment. Dress code is Mardi Gras or black tie. The event takes place at National Star’s campus at Ullenwood, near Cheltenham.
