Summer Ball 2014

Towcestrians hosted their annual and ever popular Summer Ball last Friday.

The weather was set fine and although the numbers this year were slightly disappointing, the great and the good turned up to enjoy a night of ribaldry, fun enjoyment, looking resplendent in their gowns, dresses and Tuxedos!

Madhatters Tea Party was this year’s theme and the Marquee was beautifully decorated.

A new feature this year was the Cocktail and Shots Bar provided by Chrissie George & Dave Wilson. With fellow reprobate Antony Penny to assist. This was a famous hit, they have a lot to answer for…….

Following a (very) welcome drink of Fizz the evening was started by the serving of a sumptuous 4 course meal cooked and served to all by Nicki Steele and her catering crew and delicious it was to.

Jeff Howkins provided the background music before the decks were cleared for the headline act, the ever popular Skatoons who instantly had the whole place rocking! The new format of the marquee proved very popular and the dance floor took centre stage and proved a magnet for some wannabee Strictly contestants (practice needed!). following the Skatoons, Jeff then lead the party goers through the night with some great music.

Special thanks must go to the Ball committee for providing a memorable night: Thank you Gemma, Chris, Annette, Nichola and Paddy aka Sarah (Those handmade table decs were awesome!)
