You are cordially invited to
The Masquerade of Madness


That time of year has come once more. There’s a chill in the air, and a shadow creeps across the land. Celebrate the return of Mad King Oswald Thorn and his son, Bloody Prince Edrick Thorn. As the the endless night draws near, soon our all-time-favourite monarch, Mad King Thorn, will bestow us with his beautiful and terrible presence.

The theme of this competition is Halloween! Display your best spooky looks for a chance to win the Mad King’s favour!

Join us and dance the night away at the ball of madness.
Your Mad King says…
Don’t be late… or else!
