ROM PROM, hosted by ROM’s Young Patrons Circle, remains our favourite gala to usher in Spring. And we’re extra excited for this year’s alluring and provocative theme: Forbidden City. A naughty night at the museum? Yes please. We can’t wait.

Inspired by the centennial exhibition, this unforgettable evening (with 1000+ guests!) promises a sumptuous Dim-Sum buffet, Chinese astrology readings, riveting live performances and tempting lounges in dimly-lit corners.

Step into the inner courtyard of #ForbiddenPROM and get lost in an era dusted in mystery and intrigue. Sip an oolong cocktail, pose for photos and hit the dance floor until the wee hours: this classy affair is known to get a little prehistoric.
