We are delighted to announce that our grand ball, postponed last year due to Covid, will go ahead this year – and tickets are now on sale.
The event will go-ahead in the park’s Edwardian pavilion ballroom on Saturday September 10, with amazing food, drink and entertainment to celebrate the Roaring 20s and an era of glamour and decadence.
The event was originally due to be held last year, as part of celebrations to mark 100 years since the park was founded by Charles Wicksteed, in 1921.
We wanted to mark the centenary of the park with a not-to-be-missed grand ball and, despite having to postpone it due to Covid, we were committed to ensuring it would still go-ahead, even if it is a year late.
People attending the evening of celebration will be able to enjoy exquisite 1920s cocktails, followed by a delicious three-course 1920s-inspired meal created exclusively for the event by the park’s executive chef.
A vintage band will then strike up, allowing people to dance the night away, alongside professional Flapper dancers.
We have also announced plans for a Centenary Regatta, also postponed from last year, a free event on Saturday August 10, where you can enjoy activities on the lake, a traditional village fete, children’s entertainment and fantastic live music.
