To those of you who live for jazz, swing and gin we salute you, welcome to the Masquerade 2012. Celebrating all things speakeasy, the Masquerade is proud to announce that this year we will be hosting jazz-dub duo The Correspondents as well as a smashing line up of some of the best funk, beat and DJ talent the UK has to offer!
Founded just over two years ago to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and increase awareness about a condition that affects around 8,500 in the UK and a further 30,000 in the US. After two fantastic sell-out success events, we have managed to donate over £8,000 to our nominated charity.
CF severely adversely affects suffers’ breathing and digestive systems and as such dramatically reduces the life expectancy of those with the condition. Sadly there is currently no cure for the condition, but with help from fundraisers such as the St Andrews Masquerade organisations like the Cystic Fibrosis Trust are increasingly able to develop new treatments through their research which help CF suffers cope with their illness. We have worked hard to build a close relationship with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust over the years, and are now registered and listed on their website as one of their key fundraisers.
Having been hosted at some of St Andrews most prestigious venues, including the Old Course Hotel and Fernie Castle of Letham, and having worked with some of the UK’s leading spirits and drinks companies, including Chase Vodka, Hendrick’s Gin and Kopparberg Cider to name just a few, we are looking very much looking forward to this year’s event, which will undoubtedly be our biggest success to date.
Thank you for your support!
