The Railway Ball is back – and there are early bird offers available!

The end of November sees the welcome return of the industry’s number one fundraiser, The Railway Ball.

And there are special offers for those signing up early.

The Railway Ball is an annual fundraiser championed by Rail companies large and small to enable the charity Railway Children to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people here in the UK, as well as in India and Africa. Over £7 million has been raised since the first Ball in 2000, and the £8 million target is within reach.

Returning to the InterContinental London – The O2, on Friday 25 November 2022, the Ball was last held back in 2019, just before COVID-19. The pandemic inevitably stopped plans to run the 2020 and 2021 Balls. After an absence of two years, Ball organisers are thrilled to see a real appetite for tickets, with over 500 sold since the booking office opened just before Christmas. Long-term supporters such as Ashurst’s, Atkins, HS1 and Porterbrook have booked to join the party. Some new faces are also putting in an appearance, including Morgan Sindall and Renew Holdings plc, to name but a few.

Early bird deals

Early bird deals are available for those who book before 31 January 2022, so businesses who have yet to book and want to take advantage of the discounted rates are urged to book now.

Speculation has begun as to what the 2022 theme will be. “Guests associate The Railway Ball with first class entertainment plus a few surprises,” said Ball Chair and HS1 CEO, Dyan Crowther. “After an absence of two years, we are working hard to ensure that there is a genuine feelgood factor to our fundraising, that will get everyone on the dance floor.”

As a media partner for The Railway Ball, Rail Business Daily will be keeping you up to date on the Ball in the coming months. So, watch this space.
