The Annual Charity Ball

Turn up in your finery for a photo opportunity and complimentary drink, before enjoying a fine three course meal followed by a fabulous evening of  dancing the night away to our fantastic band called ‘Dusty Eggshed’.

There is also the chance to try out lady luck on the casino tables, (Roulette, Black Jack, and Poker) Charity chips will be provided, but thereafter it’s your own money! All proceeds raised will go to DSE21.

This year’s Annual Charity Ball will take place on 6th October 2012 from 7.30pm – 1am.  It is a great night out for a very reasonable £39.50 per head in one of the finest venues around at Stock Brook Manor.
