Happy New Year to you all. I can’t believe that Christmas has come and gone so quickly and here we are in 2018 already.
As we are now in the countdown to this year’s White Hat Ball, I thought it might be a good idea to run through some of the arrangements for people who are coming for the first time.
The champagne drinks reception will start from 6.30pm in the Westbourne Suite, where you will have an opportunity to mix and mingle with the other guests, buy raffle tickets for the draw later on in the evening and buy this year’s lapel pin. It’s also a chance to examine some of the lots on display for the silent and live auctions.
The dress code is black tie, so don your best dinner jacket, ball gown or snappy cocktail dress and don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes. Who knows, you may get to dance the rumba with our celebrity guest of honour – Anton Du Beke from Strictly!
The hotel does take cards but It’s always a good idea to have cash on you as well. Especially for things like raffle tickets. The hotel has undergone a major 5 star refurbishment since last year, so the ball will be grander than ever.
I look forward to seeing you on the 26th January 2018.
Chair of White Hat Committee
