Expect to have a fun-filled night based around the 70's TV show 'It's in the bag', but with a twist.

Throughout the night you could have the chance to win one of twelve bags. All it will take is your number to be called (you will get one when you arrive at the door) and correctly answering three simple questions.

The event is an R18 evening as a cash bar will be available. Food will also be available from some great food vendors.

A great raffle and some awesome auction items will be up for grabs also.

This will be a St John charity ambassador led evening with all proceeds going directly to St John to help with the great work they do as first responders and within the community.
