Guideposts Ball



Let’s party like it’s 1972

You are warmly invited to The Guideposts Ball – an inclusive evening of fun and dancing where we will celebrate the charity’s 50th anniversary in style.

The night will include a three-course meal, raffle and bingo prizes, a live music set, and a disco where you can dance the night away.

This year we’re taking you back to 1972 – the year Guideposts was founded. Make sure you pay a visit to our 70s photobooth where you can try on a range of retro accessories!

Frequently asked questions

What is the dress code?

The dress code is formal – so dress to impress! We’ll be awarding Ball king and queen to whoever comes in the snazziest 70s outfit.

Can I bring a carer?

If you need support from a carer, you can book a ticket for them at no extra cost.

Will there be transport to the venue?

We’ll be organising transport to take people from our three regions – Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, and Oxfordshire – to the venue. Please indicate on the booking form if you would like transport assistance and we will keep you in the loop about what we are arranging.

Will I get my ticket in the post?

We will send you your ticket and wristband 1 week before the event begins. You’ll also get your free bingo and raffle ticket if you booked an early bird ticket.
