DRESS CODE :
This is a gala, so please dress semi-formal/formal, no jeans or t-shirts please!
Steampunk costuming is OPTIONAL, but highly encouraged. The theme of the evening is "circus", so think old carnivale and Victorian fancy dress parties.
There are so few occasions during the year where one can dress fancy, and this is the perfect occasion to bring out the silk dress or the swell suit!
PLEASE NOTE : there will be prizes for costumes!
WEAPONS : No weapons are allowed at the event (fake or not!).
COAT CHECK WILL BE AVAILABLE.
There is no age limit, and drinks will be available (MUST BE +19 TO BUY or CONSUME ALCOHOL.)
