Big Ball 2019 - Feedback Summary


Dear Members,

Now that the dust has settled after the biggest event in the Club’s social diary this year, the Big Ball Committee have met to discuss the event and the feedback received. Thank you to everyone who filled in the survey – your input is important. The Committee put a lot of time and effort into making the evening a success for the members but unfortunately you can’t please all of the people all of the time, no matter how dedicated the background team is.

Overall, the Ball was deemed to be a successful event and an enjoyable night. That is not to say that the event was without some issues. Unfortunately there were several problems with the bar company, some of which the Committee had to try to resolve as late as Saturday evening just as guests were arriving. Suffice it to say that if another Big Ball takes place then we would look at alternative solutions for running the bar and providing a good selection of drinks on the night.

In an attempt to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the evening, the number of tickets sold was not far off 400. In future, numbers would be capped to a more manageable total. This would no doubt mean that issues with the catering would be less likely. The Committee took a risk with the style of catering this year and for some it worked, for others it didn’t. But you never know until you try!

We would like to thank the events company Paradigm, particularly Daksha Patel who decorated the tables and went above and beyond in helping clear away on the night of the Ball and on Sunday.

Finally, a date for your diary is The Christmas Party on Saturday 14th December – a fun night is planned and more details will follow soon.

Kind regards,

Social Committee
