On the scorcher of a day that was Saturday 6th July, Bigday were please to be catering for Kingshott School Year 8s Summer Ball! Hosted in a HUGE marquee on the schools field, full with 24 tables to seat 300 hungry mouths!
The theme was masquerade and everyone was turning up in fantastic masks, and formal attire, getting their photos taken in the glorious sunshine outside. Accompanied by a glass of rose prosecco, which was nice and refreshing in the heat! Parents and teachers alike all bought raffle tickets (including us!) from the year 8s in order to raise money for charity.
Once raffle tickets were bought and photos taken, everyone gathered inside the marquee to sit down for their two course meal, which included chicken stuffed with spinach and mozzarella served with Dauphonoise potatoes and a red pepper sauce, and the vegetarian option was stuffed pepper which looked and tasted delicious!, and for dessert, homemade Apple Tarte Tartin served warm with vanilla ice cream and a strawberry on top.
All this went down a treat, and with everyone fed the auction could begin! With prizes that included a holiday cottage retreat, free round of golf, and a Boris Becker signed tennis racket!
We do not know how much the pupils, parents and teachers raised, but by how much the raffle prizes were going for, we know they raised a fantastic amount!
Auction over, raffle draw over, time for the year 8s and parents to take to the dance floor!
Bigday had our mobile bar there, which opened at 7pm and shut at 2am, with a wide selection of drinks which was conveniently placed next to the dance floor so we could have a little dance behind the bar too and join in with the celebrations!
After the year 8s went home for a well deserved rest, as they all worked so hard selling raffle tickets! The remaining parents and teachers carried on the night, dancing and singing to classic tunes and new hit music right through until 2am when last orders at the bar came in and the final song was being played.
Bigday thoroughly enjoyed catering for a school ball, and we congratulate the year 8s and hope them well in the future at their new schools.
