Why Rupert holds these parties

Rupert likes big parties with his friends; supporting local musicians, artists, community-oriented groups, local businessowners; building interactive props and scenery; and dancing. There aren't enough parties in the winter - we aim to fill that gap. And we believe in supporting creativity in all its forms: music, costumes, props, dancing, conversation!
