26th Annual Gala & Auction
2014 Annual Gala & Auction
That The British Invasion Began.
It started as a musical revolution, led by The Beatles from Liverpool, and soon spread to London, the United States and beyond, challenging and changing the world’s ideas of art, fashion, theatre, filmmaking, photography and culture.
On November 1st, join the Peterborough Players for a celebration of that special time in history. Come back with us to the 60s, and enjoy an evening of sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, irrestistible desserts, fine wines and delightful cocktails, all combined with the fun and excitement of silent and live auctions.
Dress up in your 60's finest to compete in our costume contest for a very special prize! So dress up like Ringo, Twiggy or your own 1964 look and enjoy the fun!
