There’ll be flapper style and Charleston glamour at this year’s annual Mayor’s charity ball.
The annual event, which raises thousands for charity, will be held at the Copthorne Hotel on Friday 5 April.
200 tickets are available for the event which features a sit down three course meal, live entertainment, music, dancing, games, a charity auction, raffle and more. Tickets cost £38, but people are advised to book quickly as last year these sold out quickly.
While flapper dresses and spats are optional, the ball is an opportunity to dress up and enjoy an evening of civic celebration as it is also the venue for the prestigious Civic Awards. Each year, the awards recognise the borough’s unsung heroes in the fields of sport, art, community spirit, education, business and environment. Nominations are now open to the public.
Each award is sponsored by a local business drawn from the Mayoral Business Club, this year’s main sponsor of the Mayor’s Ball and Civic Awards is Lapal House care home.
Councillor Alan Taylor, Mayor of Dudley, said:
The Mayor’s Ball and Civic Awards provides an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of those people who give their time and energy to their communities and it’s a pleasure to be able to recognise their hard work at his high profile event.
Last year’s tickets sold out really quickly, so I would recommend anyone wishing to come along to book as soon as possible.
I’m looking forward to the ball itself but more importantly to meeting those dedicated people who help to make the borough a place we’re all proud to call home.”
