Fancy Dress Afro-Peruvian Dinner


On Saturday 1st March Casa per la Pace, in cooperation with an Afro-Peruvian group who use our office for dance classes, organised a fancy dress Afro-Peruvian dinner with traditional Peruvian dancing, drama and music.As you can imagine with any masquerade event, much hilarity ensued with a great range of costumes and masks being worn. My personal favourite was Casa per la Pace’s President wearing a crocodile hat and multicoloured cape! The event was open to anyone and a good number came (although not all in fancy dress!)

 We spent the previous days cooking, preparing the food and arranging the venue. For a small cost we provided an aperitivo and drinks, including a lot of Sangria, and it was a very sociable event with everyone eating and talking together. It was a great opportunity to meet new people of all ages in a relaxed atmosphere. Throughout the evening there were different theatrical contributions presented by children and adults on the theme of Afro-Peruvian culture and very quickly everyone joined in with the frivolity and dancing.

It was an hilarious event with great food, entertainment and company.
