On Saturday 3rd February, over 100 people attended the richly decorated village hall for a Bollywood Night.
The red carpet entrance flowed with shimmering, exotic Indian attire as many guests arrived in full Bollywood Regalia.
The evening included a Quiz, Henna hand-painting, delicious Indian food provided by Jeera Restaurant in Stone, a Raffle, a Silent Auction and lots of dancing to the music of DJ Deep.
The highlight of the evening was the Bollywood Dancing lesson by Olivia Mott, when it was nearly impossible to find a space on the dance floor. Who knew there were so many Bhangra fans in Haddenham?!
Huge thanks to all the individuals and organisations who contributed so generously to help make the evening a success. What a wonderful demonstration of our Haddenham community spirit.
Special thanks go to; McCormicks, the Banister Family, Howard Rose, Georgina Rudolph, Bradmoor Farm, Rectory Homes, Haddenham Garden Centre, Aylesbury Bullion, Barbara James, Olivia Mott, Haddenham Post Office, Sara Wootton, Zena Ashdown, Haddenham Carpets, Ilan Arkin, Maze Hairdressers, Sue Childs and the King's Head.
And of course to the many members of St Mary's congregation who worked so hard behind the scenes.
Just over £3,000 was raised for St Mary's church fabric fund and the church hall.
Lots more photos to enjoy in the GALLERIES section of this website.
If any of the guests featured in the image gallery would like a large (A4) colour print, these are available from the editor of Haddenham.net — all funds raised from these images will go to the church fabric fund.
