Councillor Elias Mattu and his wife Asha have organised the evening of masked fun for Saturday 28 October.

Guests are encouraged to don Venetian style masks for the event which will take place at the Diamond Banqueting Suite, in Skinner Street. A 3 course sit down meal and reception drink is included in the ticket price.

Entertainment will be provided by professional fire eaters and a DJ will get people moving on the dancefloor.

The Mayor's chosen charities this year are  Acorns Hospice, Street Pastors, Sickle Cell Care, Interfaith Wolverhampton, the Alzheimer's Society and Wolverhampton Central Youth Theatre.

Councillor Mattu said: "My wife, the Mayoress, came up with this idea as a wonderful way to raise money for charity.

"This will be a fun, relaxed evening open to everyone. We would like all our guests to enter into the spirit of the ball and wear Venetian style masks.

"Not only will people enjoy a fun evening with lots of entertainment, they will also help raise money for charities that are very close to my heart."

Tickets, priced £25 each, are available from the box office at City of Wolverhampton Art Gallery in Lichfield Street or by calling 01902 552055.
