Glamorous ball at Roman Baths to fight meningitis

6th October 2015

A glamorous and glitzy Halloween Ball is set to make a significant impact on our fight to beat meningitis

Diamonds and Devils
The Diamonds and Devils Ball at Bath’s Roman Baths includes a torchlit champagne reception around the Roman Baths, a four-course dinner, live entertainment featuring international artist Miss Sukki Singapora and dancing.

“This ball is the perfect opportunity to dress up in your sparkliest dresses and black tie and enjoy a glamorous social occasion before the Christmas party season begins” 

“That’s what this evening’s all about – enjoying a great night out at the same time as making a real difference in the fight against meningitis.”

In the party mood

“Everyone should be in the party mood too after the Rugby World Cup final earlier that day.”

Amanda Oxford, organiser and Director of Fundraising and Communications at Meningitis Now

We hope the ball will become a regular feature of the social calendar in the city, where we have been working recently to support well-known local family Freya and Ross Hall and their daughter Harmonie-Rose. 

Harmonie-Rose was 10 months old when she became ill with meningitis in August last year. She was given just a 10 per cent chance of survival.

But the brave and smiley youngster has won hearts throughout the city as she fights back from the disease, despite suffering multiple amputations. 

Little miracle

“Harmonie is our little miracle. She fought so hard to stay here with her family. She may have lost her arms and her legs but she can still enjoy her life.”

The ball takes place at the Roman Baths on Saturday 31 October, so if you’re in the area why not go along?

International artist Sukki Singapora has donated a red carpet dress as a raffle prize and Bristol and Bath Business Woman of the year, jeweller Annette Gabbedey, has donated a diamond pendant. Frome-based retro clothing shop, Deadly is the Female, has also contributed a dress whilst Bath-based film director Ken Loach has donated a copy of his annotated shooting script for ‘The Angels’ Share.’

Tables for ten cost £1.000 and individual tickets are £110 per person. Spaces are limited so early booking is advised. Meningitis Now is grateful to Crest Nicholson Regeneration for its support of the evening.
