    DJ Marco

    Coming from a romantic and deep house techno background in Italy,  DJ Marco experienced music all throughout his life,
    researching and acquiring his own taste, looking for the groove inside out. This research is still very active and is a never ending chapter in his life.                   

                                       Marco
    He welcomed the influence of European music scene in the early 2000’s in Italy and Germany, where he crossed the borders getting close to hardcore progressive music and even closer to the music industry. He then shifted to a more underground and house style which fascinated him. His taste migration constitutes the pillar of what Marco plays now,  spacey deephouse music and a polyedric ability to put together old and new  grooves that satisfy any music lover.

  • Who should attend?

    We invite friends from Nanjing, Jiangsu, Shanghai and beyond to gather for an incredible night celebrating the best of British culture – all while supporting two worthy causes.

  • Dress Code & Meals

    Dress Code

    Formal attire, ball gown, black tie or tuxedo and dress to impress!

    This year's ball theme is Downton Abbey. The TV series are set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey between 1912 and 1926.

    This is a TV drama that follows the lives of the Crawley family and their servants in the family's Edwardian country house. 

    It's no secret that ladies and gentelmen of Downton Abbey have always been impeccably dressed. The 1920s were a decade where fashion began to flourish with modernity. 

    Would you like to impress our guests with your Edwardian's fashion taste?

    Go for it, wether it is with your dress and dowdy updos, vintage jewelleries and tiaras, or the flapper gears we are looking forward to seeing you enjoy this special night!
