This year’s highly anticipated fundraising gala has been inspired by the fashion, flavours and glamour of 1930s Cuba and is slated to take place 25 November 2016. Bringing the history of our tropical neighbour to life, guests will be invited to step into a vibrant La Habana Vieja (Old Havana). Admission to the event includes live performances, fantastic eats, a Havana Club rum lounge, La Casa De Habana – cigar rollers, charming curios and dancing into the early hours.

Prepare to be enthralled as the F.J Harquail Theatre is transformed into Club Havana. Mingle with fellow jetsetters while sipping a cool mojito, bid on a fabulous auction prize, stroll the paseo, take in a spectacular Cuban dance performance, order a top up cocktail from a champion bartender, then dance the night away to the sounds of (the musical roots of Salsa).

Guests are highly encouraged to dress in vintage Cuban couture, and formal evening wear is a must for the soiree. National Gallery staff and volunteers have crafted a Pinterest page of paseo runway-inspired looks for you to peruse which can be found at www.pinterest.com/NatGalCayman.
