£7434 Raised at 80’s TAP Event!


Neon leg warmers were dusted off on Friday 15 March for ArtsEd’s Teacher and Parent Association 80’s Party Fundraiser, raising money for the hardship fund and new pianos for the Day School and Sixth Form.

ArtsEd parents and teachers gathered at Soho House in White City in their 80’s glad-rags, prepared for some big wins at the auction and casino, topped off with some shape-throwing on the dance floor. Amongst shrills of ‘Material Girl’ and bopping to ‘Wake Me Up Before you Go Go’, there was a perpetual feeling of camaraderie and support for the cause.

And of course, there was an array of brilliant 80’s fancy-dress, on show:

Overall, TAP raised a whopping £7434 for ArtsEd, so we would like to take the opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU to TAP for organising this wonderful event and for their generous donations.
