The Loved Ones + Twisted Prom Night Dress Up Party

Concert or Performance

28 Aug 2020

Come dressed in your best twisted prom-night fashion – with prizes for best dressed – and have your polaroid taken under our balloon arch. There will be paper crowns for everyone!

Be rewarded for every ticketed screening, event or exhibition at the NFSA every time you visit. Your seventh visit is free.
