Roaring Twenties Autumn Ball 2018

‘Oh what a night’ as the great Frankie Vallie sang. Our Roaring Twenties Autumn Ball 2018, was a great success, fun, laughter and lots of dancing.

 The guests were dressed in the spirit of the twenties, glamorous dresses, pearls and boas, feathers in the hair, gangster suits and machine guns at the ready, all ready for the razzle-dazzle of the evening.

Rob Falcon our MC and entertainment for the evening swiftly gathered us into the ballroom, and after a swift game of heads and tails.

Our speaker for the evening Stuart Kenyon gave a heartfelt passionate talk.

A delicious three-course meal was served by a host of friendly efficient staff, at the same time Rob travelled around the tables and creating balloon art, telling jokes and chatting to all.

The entertainment then went into full swing, James Pelham, Richard Jackson & Carly Ryan gave brilliant performances, (all on the spectrum), the audience were in raptures throughout.

The evening changed dramatically, Rob got everyone up and dancing without anyone realising what was happening, one minute standing by our tables, then the conga, then on the dancefloor, as Rob had changed into a dramatic Kylie outfit standing on a chair with the audience applauding.

The joy was to see our Hub members joining in laughing and enjoying the whole experience.  (The Hub members came for free)

Once again Mungo Gilchrist the photographer for the evening gave his time for free and took magnificent photographs, all available to download for free from his website. You can also find him on Facebook.

The raffle and auction raised over £2,000 in the evening!
