The bling-tastic world of Bollywood is set to arrive at St Catherine’s Hospice tonight as part of the charity’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
Guests will be transported around the world in a whirl of colour and sparkle as a special marquee set up in the hospice’s Lostock Hall grounds is transformed into an amazing Bollywood set.
St Catherine’s has teamed up with Neesh Events, a specialist in this field, and is encouraging people to try something different in the name of a great cause.
Guests will be treated to music from an authentic Bollywood DJ and learn some traditional dance moves from the experts.
There will also be an Indian food buffet and the chance to get made over by a Mehndi artist with amazing henna tattoos.
Bina Limbachia, who runs Neesh Events with her husband Ravish, said: “Bollywood is becoming popular with people from all circles – the glitz, the bling, the Bhangra and Bollywood music and of course the dancing, it’s just such good fun!”
Bina, from Broadgate, has been running the company - which specialises in Asian weddings – for the past 10 years.
She added: “We’ll have some amazing dancers here performing, who will also interact with the crowd and show them how to do some of the popular moves from the movies – things like the ‘light bulb’ which people might already recognise.”
Tickets cost £20 and are available from visiting www.stcatherines.co.uk or by calling 01772 629171.
