About our Birthday Ball

  • Price: £45 per person / £320 for a table of 8 (£40 saving). Ticket price includes a Welcome drink on arrival, delicious three-course meal, musical entertainment and entry into the prize draw to win a trip around Glastonbury Festival (while the Festival is NOT taking place) with Michael Eavis and more!
  • Location: Rookery Manor, Edingworth Rd, Weston-super-Mare BS24 0JB (well located for both Somerset and North Somerset)
  • Time: 7:00pm - 1am

On Saturday 10th November, 7pm till late, join us to enjoy an unforgettable evening including a delicious three course meal followed by live music from 14 piece band, The Blues Others.

If dancing isn't your thing you can have a go at our fun Casino offering all the excitement of a real casino but for a good cause and with a great top prize! 

Later there will be a live auction with incredible lots to bid on - the kind of special activities that money can’t usually buy - and talking of great prizes there will also be a raffle. If you’ve still got energy left after all that, the bar will still be open and the disco will go on til late.

The Ball will be taking place at the Rookery Manor and all funds raised on the evening will go towards Age UK Somerset's projects to help older people suffering from loneliness across the area.

For 70 years we’ve been bringing colour and friendship into lonely lives and with your help we can help many more.   

You won’t find a more worthwhile opportunity to glam up!

Menu for our Birthday Ball

This short video shows the difference our Befriending service can make.  With your help we can send more Volunteers out to change the lives of more ladies like Jean.

Could you treat a Volunteer?

From acting as befrienders to ease loneliness, assisting with horrible benefits forms and running gentle exercise sessions, our Volunteers are the best! We couldn't provide the services we do without them, but they rarely get the recognition and thanks they deserve. This year our Charity Ball falls within National Volunteers Week and we'd love to say to as many Volunteers as possible "you SHALL go to the Ball"! Please could you be a Fairy Godmother and help us to thank them by sponsoring a Volunteer's ticket? Even if you are unable to attend the Ball yourself, enabling a Volunteer to go would make their night, and would be a lovely way to show your support. If you can, please tick the box on the booking form. With your permission we will add you to our Supporters page. THANK YOU.


In our 70th Anniversary year we hope your business will support our Charity Ball by taking a table on the night and/or taking advantage of our sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsoring our event will give you a lovely warm feeling, demonstrate your company's commitment to supporting local causes whilst promoting your company name to an audience of approximately 200 people on the night as well as social media, press and website reach before, during and after.
