Renaissance Ball 2022

Friends of RGS are excited to announce the Renaissance Ball for the community of RGS, to include parents, staff, governors, friends of school, Alumni and Old Rips.

The Renaissance ball will be held at the Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate on Saturday 19th November. Our aim is to raise funds towards a Health, Fitness & Well-being Suite at RGS that would be all inclusive, benefitting all pupils, staff and the wider community of RGS.

The evening will commence with pre-dinner drinks at 7.30pm, accompanied by music from RGS pupils. We will be seated for the first of three courses at 8pm with carriages expected at 12.30am, although the bar will be open until 1am. The 3-course meal, will provide a vegetarian option and dietary requirements can be catered for in the set menu chosen. The meal will finish with freshly brewed tea/coffee and after dinner mints.

Alongside music from RGS pupils and a DJ, we are extremely lucky to have secured the famous New York Brass Band, who will be playing jazz music on the night. They are affiliated to RGS and have toured all over the world, including Glastonbury.

The evening will include a raffle, games of Heads & Tails and an auction, so lots of fund-raising opportunities for the school, with wonderful prizes to be won. The ball presents an exciting opportunity for parents to enjoy socialising with other parents, staff and the wider community affiliated to RGS.

Tickets are priced at £65 a head and the dress code is black tie or lounge suits.

We have 30 tables available and these will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Should you wish to organise a table of 10 or 12 please click on the link provided in the top right box and complete the table booking form which includes payment details for your table. If you have a smaller group or just wish to attend as a couple, we can organise a table for you and will try and keep year group parents together if at all possible.

Please email friends@ripongrammar.com should you wish to purchase some tickets or reserve a table of 10 or 12.

Friends of RGS would love to hear from you if you are able to assist in any way or donate a raffle or auction prize. Equally any sponsorship or charitable donation would be gratefully received.

Thank you for supporting Friends of RGS, we look forward to seeing you for a fun evening at the Renaissance Ball.

Friends of RGS seek to provide enrichment opportunities for pupils, staff, parents & the wider community.
