Date announced for FM Industry Ball 2017

This year’s FM Industry Ball will take guests back to the Roaring Twenties with a glamorous Great Gatsby-themed evening on 20 June 2017. The lavish Grand Connaught Rooms will be transformed into a glittering ballroom reminiscent of one of Jay Gatsby’s famous Long Island parties to raise money for The Children’s Trust, the leading UK charity for children with brain injury.

Now in its fourth year, the FM Industry Ball is truly an event for the industry organised by the industry. Glamorously-dressed guests will be greeted by a glitzy string quartet playing during a 90-minute Champagne reception. After a classic game of Heads and Tails, a delicious three-course meal will be served with free-flowing wine. The entertainment will include a return of the West End Kids song and dance troupe who will showcase tunes and routines from some of London’s greatest musicals; and a silent auction of everything from holidays and vintage wine to art and experience days followed by a competitive live auction conducted by a professional auctioneer. After dinner, a swanky 10-piece jazz band will play authentic 1920s music to ensure everyone gets onto the dance floor to try out their Charlestons.

For flappers and dappers keen to party the night away, the official after-party will take place next door at Sway where guests can end the evening with classic 1920s cocktails from a classic Champagne Cocktail, and Old Fashioned for the racier Between the Sheets.
