Festive masquerade balls – Christmas and New Year 2018       

For the ultimate in festive glamour, it has to be a masquerade ball.

Knowsley Safari Park

Set against a backdrop of St Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge, with live theatre, living statues and aerial acrobatics as you enjoy a four-course dinner, these events – complete with casino and after dinner dodgems – look set to ramp up the glamour this Christmas.
