Mad Hatter's Ball

The St Catherine’s Stage Band welcomed around 530 members of the St Catherine’s community to a magical wonderland on Saturday evening.


Talented Year 11 drama students dressed 'in character' ushered our guests to the Jo Karaolis Sports Centre. They were met by Alice, who directed guests ‘down the rabbit hole’ into a fabulously themed venue, the highlight of which was a spectacular Mad Hatter’s Table. There were games to play, prizes to win, auctions to bid on and much dancing to be had! 

A sumptuous feast was prepared by Mark and Kate White of KATERING and to top off the evening, Headmistress Dr Julie Townsend together with MC extraordinaire Warwick Hunt joined a flash mob with our drama and dance students on centre stage! 

There can be no doubt that the Mad Hatter’s Ball committee have taken us to a new height in events! We will be posting a photographic album on our Facebook page so do have a look and of course enjoy the video.

Sincere thanks to the committee: Chair Amy Somes, Dimity D’Angelo, Holly Findlay, Shiman Muriti, Jacqui Parshall, Sally Taylor and Mark and Kate White. Their dedication to this event has been absolute!

We do draw your attention to our generous sponsors and prize donors  – without their support and generosity, this event would not have been so fantastic.
