A sparkling charity dinner ball with fabulous entertainment, in aid of some very special Suffolk charities.

Saturday 12th October 2024

6pm – midnight
Venue 16, Ipswich IP4 3QJ

Guests at our very first ball will enjoy a welcome drink and 3-course dinner as part of a fantastic evening compèred by BBC Radio Suffolk’s Wayne Bavin, including live music from The Spin Lights and Pop Chorus.

This year sees Pop Chorus going back to our roots, having raised over £70K for charities in 12 years, with each of our 7 groups choosing local charities to support – resulting in a diverse range of excellent causes from fuelling children’s reading passion to feeding people at Christmas and supporting those with life-limiting illness.

Our singing groups are stars in their own right, and together form the constellation that makes up our Pop Chorus family – and the causes we’re supporting the constellation that binds our communities together.

This is a night to celebrate together, raising glasses and much-needed funds.
