About The Ball

Whether you're attending alone, as a couple, marking a special occasion, or reuniting with friends, the ball promises an evening of elegance and sophistication.

Celebrating its 9th year, the Deeping Summer Ball stands as a pinnacle of elegance and festivity on the Deepings calendar. With its black-tie and long dress code, it captures the essence of a glamorous summer evening filled with live music, gala dining, and spirited dancing, all set within our luxury pavilion.

Beyond the grandeur and merriment, the heart of the event beats for a noble cause. The evening's proceeds from the fundraising activities will directly benefit our chosen charity, Dementia Support South Lincs, and by joining us, you are playing an instrumental role in enriching the lives of those affected by dementia.

From the moment of arrival, expect to be dazzled: a complimentary glass of bubbly in hand, the soothing melodies of our vintage singer, and the flash of our professional photographer preserving your best moments. As you make your way to the pavilion, our cocktail bartenders stand at the ready to craft your preferred drink, while the warm tones of our Master of Ceremonies, Alan Jackson, and the gracious presence of organiser Sharon Roberts set the scene. And for those looking to indulge, a curated wine and cocktail selection is available for pre-order.

In keeping with our tradition of uninterrupted enjoyment, you won't be side-tracked by lengthy speeches. Instead, the spotlight shines on live performances from our 5-piece band, Pure Odyssey, and the beats of DJ Johnny Kaye – ensuring you're on your feet and lost in the music.

The Charity

Dementia Support South Lincs is a small, local, independent charity which supports over 300 families affected by dementia in The Deepings, Stamford, Bourne and surrounding villages. The charity’s vision is “To continue to encourage, motivate and inspire those affected by dementia, giving them confidence to achieve as full a life as possible in the community”.

Dementia Support South Lincs

The charity was started in early 2011 by Kate Marshall and a small group of carers. Since becoming a registered charity in 2012, Dementia Support South Lincs has gone from strength to strength. The charity supports their members through monthly coffee mornings, therapeutic activities like art, tai chi and singing, a regular newsletter, social events, email contact and one to one visits. Social events include a Valentine’s Day lunch, a summer garden party and a Harvest Ceilidh where members enjoy an afternoon of music and dancing. The trustees, professional support workers and volunteers organise yearly outings to places like Grimsthorpe Castle, Rutland Water and a shopping trip to Springfields.

How They Make a Difference

The charity also runs a club for people living with early onset dementia. This means they have been diagnosed under the age of 65. The Square Hole Club has been meeting twice monthly in Market Deeping for six years. The club offers themed and stimulating activities for members whilst allowing their partners to take a much needed break.

The charity campaigns to make a difference with politicians both at a local and national level and supports national initiatives like Dementia Friendly Communities and Dementia Awareness Week.

Reviews

What a fantastic evening, the marquee was set to such a high standard I was expecting royalty!! It was great to get dressed to the 9s and dance the night away to a cracking band. Myself and my guests thought the food was divine and we give our compliments to the catering staff. Got to be one of the best nights I've had in a long time, the atmosphere was electric! Knowing the ball was for such a good cause made the evening all the more special!
Joe Gaskin
The Summer Ball was just amazing, everything was taken into consideration and the attention to detail was perfect. From arrival to the ending. This was our first time and we will certainly be returning. Everybody has worked hard over the past months and your effort has certainly paid off.
