Greatest night out

A local school is tying its summer ball theme to a performance given by its children. The school’s adaption of The Greatest Showman took place in March, and their performance has inspired this year’s Brockton Ball theme, One Night, One Show, which aims to bring the glamour of the Victorian big top to Brockton and takes place on Saturday 8 June.

The last Brockton Ball was held in 2015 and raised over £8,000 for new iPads and IT equipment. Gayle Capps, one of the organisers, explains, “This year we’d love to match that, with funds raised being used to provide a safe outdoor play area for the preschool children, who are moving sites from Shipton Village Hall to Brockton.

“The Ball is being held in a marquee, with fizz and canapés on arrival, a sit down three-course dinner with coffee and cheese to follow, live music as well as a DJ. As part of the fundraising we’ll be holding an auction of prizes as well as a restaurant raffle for a chance to win kindly donated meals at local pubs and restaurants. We’d like to thank those who have donated prizes and sponsorship for the evening – if any other local businesses are  interested in helping us with our fundraising or if you’d like to find out more, please email”
