Be sure not to miss this year’s Jewellery & Giftware Ball (in aid of the Trade’s Benevolent Society) which is being held at St John’s Hotel, Solihull, West Midlands. The National Exhibition Centre is sponsoring the champagne reception where guests will be subtly entertained by young musicians ‘Echoes’.
The hotel has a reputation for providing excellent cuisine as can be witnessed by the 350+ guests who attended last year, many of whom re-booked immediately after the event.
Dancing will be to the Beat Collective and there may even be some surprises along the way – not least the winners of the BJA awards.
This is a charity event, so, of course, there will be some fun fund-raising activities including the Cooksongold cash prize draw, a fantastic ‘things that money can’t buy’ auction, raffle and a tombola featuring the new and exciting products entered for the Gift of the Year awards.
Ticket prices are the same as last year and – as the Ball committee aims to give everyone a brilliant night out at a reasonable price – there is no hidden donation built into the cost, which is possible only because of our big-hearted sponsors. The charity benefits from the immense generosity of those who take part in the fund-raising activities on the night.
Tickets are £858.00 (inc vat) for a table of twelve (includes one free ticket) or £78.00 (inc vat) per person.
