We enjoyed an amazing party night full of fun, surprises, fancy dress, food, drink, games, quiz, creativity and laughter. They say time flies when you are having fun and indeed 3 hours just wasn’t long enough this year as we didn’t get to dance very much, if at all!

My children often refer to my child-like quality and this party is very much about relaxing, having fun and playing. We play ‘pass-the-parcel’, musical chairs, fun party games, dress up as all-sorts of characters. There are prizes galore and I rejoice in organizing and taking part in such a playful, celebratory event. Amazingly, so do all who join in the party. We certainly practice Laughter Yoga!
