Kidsgrove 1920’s Ball raises £700

Kidsgrove Town Council 1920's Ball

Kidsgrove Town Council 2014

On Saturday 26th April, Kidsgrove Town Council held the annual Kidsgrove Mayor’s charity ball. I chose the 1920’s theme after seeing a remake of The Great Gatsby film at the cinema.  I would personally like to thank all those that attended to make the evening so successful. Some of the costumes were very authentic. I thought it would be good to list those people and businesses that contributed to the raffle so I have attached the programme of the evening, click link: Mayors Ball 2014

Almost £700 was raised for Staffordshire Sands and other charities.  It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with many local charities over the last 3 years.  I hope the new Town Mayor has just as much fun as I have had organising some of these events for a good cause.  Its such a good feeling to know the work we do has helped us to reach out to so many people in the community with many different needs.

Kidsgrove Victorian Weekend

On Saturday 30th November, Kidsgrove Town Council will be holding its annual Victorian Christmas Market at two venues.  All business traders will be located in the Victoria Hall – stalls cost £20. All charity traders will be located at the Methodist Church on the Avenue – stalls cost £10.  The event was outgrowing the Victoria Hall, but we hope to make this year even more successful. Hundreds of people attend making it one of the most well attended events of the year in Kidsgrove.  We would like to encourage anyone to take up the offer of putting on a stall, be it for business or charity. 

This event is educational for all of the family and will give you the opportunity to step back in time to imagine Kidsgrove in the Victorian era. Our food stalls will include Mince Pies and Mulled wine along with more contemporary refreshments served and prepared by volunteering local councillors. Many people dress up for the occasion in authentic period attire to enhance the Victorian ambiance. Children will also have the chance of visiting Father Christmas in his grotto.

This year we have an exciting line up of entertainers with new and upcoming solo artist, Vanessa Bebbington performing ballads and up to date tracks.  The children and staff of the Tamil School of Stoke-on-Trent will be on stage dancing to cultural music in traditional Tamil dress.  Kidsgrove community Choir and St Thomas’ Primary School students will be doing their usual stint of Christmas classics and carols. 

We have 4 business stalls left at the Victoria Hall and 10 Charity stalls left at the Methodist Church.  For booking forms click below, complete and email to: kidsgrovetc@btconnect.com
