Autumn Charity Black Tie Ball - Friday 25th October

Chance to dress up smart (Black Tie dress code) and party the night away for charity. Venue is the same as for the ball in April, i.e. The Glebe Hotel in Barford. Unlike the April event, there will be no formal meal (although you can eat in the restaurant if you / a group of you wish to, or the bar will be serving scampi and chips for £7.95, or you can eat elsewhere beforehand and turn up later). This means there is more time for socialising in the bar / dancing etc, and we will be having a much bigger dance floor to accommodate as the event can accommodate up to 150 people. I have been running events on this format for years, and Autumn events always tend to sell out, but I will reserve 70 tickets for Meet Up people - I know many of you have been to my events before, and some have already signed up for this on Facebook. Think of it as making a donation to charity and getting a free party if you like! The girls from The British Heart Foundation will be there to greet you and collect tickets. Tickets are just £13 each now the early-bird deal has finished, and I (DC) will generally have tickets at Meet Up events I attend, or you can send me the money (+£1 to cover P&P) and I will send them to you. Overnight accommodation available at The Glebe for just £70 per room (not per person!), Bed & Breakfast - please book direct if you wish to take advantage of this rate by calling the hotel on[masked] and quoting Heart Foundation Ball - NB Only call the hotel for rooms, as they do not have any tickets. Any questions, just ask - you can contact me on 01926 401001. Thanks

    Just 2 days to go now, and with all tickets sold, the DJ all set, the hotel ready, and the BHF girls ready to welcome you, its all systems go! I look forward to welcoming you all in your finery on Friday from 7pm. For those who have missed out on tickets, I will be doing another in March - watch this space for details!
    The Glebe Hotel is (brown) signed from the M40 J15, so its easy to find in Barford (next to the Church), but if you get lost, you can call me on the night on 07710 283880. See you Friday! x

    This event is now fully sold out, but places may become available if people drop out, so if you still want to come, then please let me know either by email or by adding yourself to the wait list. If you cannot now go, but have your ticket, you are welcome to sell it on, or let me know if you are happy for me to sell it again so we raise more for charity. Thanks

    Spoke to the Glebe Hotel today - all the initial allocation of rooms have been booked for the night, but they have just put 5 more on at the discounted rate for this event. If you want to stay over (£70/room B&B), then please book direct with the Glebe Hotel on[masked] and quote 'Heart Foundation Ball' to get the rate, but be quick! Thanks.

    September 17, 2013

  • DC

    JUST 5 WEEKS TO GO NOW! Spoke to the DJ the other day, and he's all revved up for another fab night! Have now removed those from the RSVP list that I've not heard / received payment from. 65 tickets have been paid for and of the rest, I know most have promised payment this weekend. Anyone who has still not paid by Tuesday will be removed, in fairness to those others who are keen to go if there are still tickets available. Those who have paid but not yet collected their tickets, please contact me. Thanks

    September 13, 2013

    • Stuart

      Sure well bump into each other at an event before then but in case we don't, are there any other options?

    The question is... DC, are there any tickets left? I dropped out when I realised the Halloween Ball was the night after - but to hell with it... what's one hangover worth when you can have two?

    1 · September 9, 2013

    • DC

      Glad you are back on for this! Yes, a few tickets still available as some have still not paid - will email you payment details direct through the website. Thanks, DC

    Hi Dave, I RSVP ages ago but I haven't paid yet. Could you send me your account details if there are tickets still available?

    September 3, 2013

    • DC

      Hi Paul, have re-sent payment details to your email today. Thanks

      September 4, 2013

      Cheers DC. I'll pay you tomorrow.

      September 4, 2013

  • DC

    Almost all tickets are now sold, both the Meet Up allocation of 70, and the event overall (150 - rest are made up of about 40 Ceroc dance people I know, and 40 general friends, although some people fall into all categories!), so if you have not paid, please do so ASAP. Everyone who has RSVPd has been emailed with payment info - if you need this re-sent, please ask. Any RSVPs that have not paid for tickets (currently just Karen (Cadman), Thelm, Natalie Cooper, Sally Simmonds, Pam McArthur, Karen (Davies), Paul Kay, Geoff, Liz Griffin, Paul (French), Laura Sheldon, Emma Hickman, Sharon Cresswell, Gareth, Richard Harris) by 11th Sept will be removed from the list to allow others to go, until all 70 are paid for.
    I also believe rooms at the hotel are pretty much sold out as well, so if you want to stay over, please book with the hotel [masked]) asap. Any questions, please feel free to email me or call me on 01926 401001. Thanks
    DC

    September 4, 2013

  • DC

    Almost all the tickets have been reserved now with RSVPs but several (15) people have not yet paid. If you want to be sure of a ticket, and have not yet paid, please do so now. I have emailed all with details of how to pay, but if you haven't had that, please contact me via my profile and 'send email', and I will send by return. If you have not yet RSVP'd but want to come, please do so now, and if you are quick you can have a ticket. Thanks
