Superheroes and villains dance the night away at Norwood’s Purim party

16 March 2017

There was dancing, drama, and hamantashen a-plenty on Monday 13 March, as people Norwood supports and Norwood staff got together at JCoSS for a fun-filled Purim party.

Everyone entered the Purim spirit, dressing up in all manner of weird and wonderful costumes.

Giant Mustard and ketchup bottles, a burger, and a hot dog turned up – not to mention several Monopoly cards; from salubrious Mayfair to the functional Utilities.

As the venue began to fill and the party reception was well underway, those dressed as condiments and Monopoly cards were also joined by four cowboys, four bandits, Batman and Robin, a posse of Minions, and a gang of Pink Ladies who streamed in and out of the photo booth.

With guests then moving away from the reception area, to the main hall, one guest, Bradley – a Norwood service user – said; "I’m looking forward to the party starting. Can’t wait!"

Dinner was promptly served, and a magician kept partygoers entertained, with rings and coins disappearing and reappearing seemingly at will.

A Purim play followed, before a lively DJ set, with Little Mix, Village People, and the Grease soundtrack all belting out.

Ketchup and mustard danced with Mini Mouse, Batman boogied with Superman, and everyone had a ball.

Speaking at the end of the night, Richard, who is supported by Norwood, said; "I’ve had a good night, but I’m tired – too much dancing!"
