Swing for shelter

With the Queens Jubilee events taking place this weekend, it’s very noticeable that vintage is having a bit of a revival. Everything is all about the fashion and style from the early to mid 1900’s, from that traditional housewife image to afternoon teas. If you are a vintage lover, then here is a Gala Night you are going to love!

Shelter NI will be holding its biggest ever Gala Night in Belfast on Saturday 16th June with a glamorous vintage extravaganza, headlined by James Huish and his nine piece Michael Buble band. The Grand Ballroom of the Stormont Hotel will be transformed into a music hall hotspot of yesteryear.

Guests are requested to wear their finest vintage clothes of any era or to dress to impress.
It will be a night to remember, hosted by Belfast finest hostess Lady Portia, starting off with a show styled by Gullion Style Photography Events with models showing fashions from the 1920s, 30s and 40s and featuring performances from the Burlesque Belles.

Then James Huish and his Michael Buble tribute band will take to the swinging stage and the dancing will commence with a swing DJ to follow.

The gala night will raise funds for the latest Shelter NI initiative which hopes to renovate vacant and derelict housing in partnership with local communities. These projects will also generate work for employed and unemployed people; skilled tradesmen and apprentices and provide affordable housing for individuals and families in housing need.

Tickets are £30. Tables of 12 are available. To book a table or individual seats, buy online at www.shelterni.org or email events@shelterni.org or ring 02890 245572
