Masquerade – the Night of Mystery


The Gala is an annual event organized by the DPT students of Lapland UAS. Its main purpose is to bring people together and meet new friends from different countries. The guests are Lapland UAS exchange students as well as students from our English speaking programs.

This year, our group (DPT’13) was in charge of planning the event with the help of the Hotel and restaurant management students. The Gala was held in the restaurant Oppipoika and the after-party in the nightclub Halfmoon.

The theme of the gala varies each year and this time, we chose Masquerade – the Night of Mystery. All the guests received a mask and a drink as soon as they arrived at the venue. Before the actual program started they could have their pictures taken at the LapinAMK photo-booth.


The menu consisted of reindeer tartar with deep fried lichen, butternut squash soup, coal grill friend pike-perch, honey-marinated season vegetables, spinach-potato puree with butter sauce. For the dessert, our guests enjoyed black currant sorbet and chocolate fondant.


During the dinner, the guests had a little mystery to solve.

There was a murderer on the loose and our hosts gave hints from the mysterious black envelopes. In the end, the murderer was caught. It was one of the waiters – Ville-Veikko.

After catching the murderer, the band started playing and our guests had a chance to dance or just enjoy the music with the “raspberry sparkle” cocktail before leaving for the after-party.
