Clifton Ball goes to Bollywood

Clifton College, May 2016

ACEs were delighted once again to provide full event management including all structures, furniture, entertainment, staffing, dressing and technical requirements for the Clifton College Commemoration Ball, and for the Pre- and Upper School speeches for 1,800 prior to the evening party.

600 guests enjoyed an amazing sharing menu of Indian delicacies and curries prepared by Fosters Event Catering, which were served in silver Balti dishes and with freshly made poppadoms. We took great joy in dessert being announced with a swirling, glittering array of Bollywood dancers and drummers processing onto the central dancefloor. After astounding the guests with their routines, the dancers led the marquee in a workshop – some great Bollywood moves! – which really got the party started.

Guests danced under the Indian fabric and parasols suspended in the roof to our vibrant and energetic covers band, also enjoying the casino and photo booth along with a fully stocked bar until 1am. Dodgems were located outside as a ‘surprise’ element for guests, revealed after dining, which are always a hit with the pupils and parents alike!
