STEP Guernsey’s Annual Ball is always a popular event.  Arguably the most exciting finance event in the Guernsey calendar, this year we are bringing you the glamour and charm of old Hollywood.

Friday 18th October 2019

The STEP Guernsey Annual Ball is the most hotly anticipated finance function in Guernsey’s calendar and is always a sell-out event.  To accommodate our growing popularity, we have moved to a larger venue this year and our Ball will take place in the David Ferguson Hall at Beau Sejour.

We look forward to welcoming you to an evening of excellent food, fine wine and grand company, and will endeavour to bring you the sophisticated glamour that only true classic Hollywood can deliver.

The evening will follow an approximate running plan as follows;

  • Drinks reception from 7pm
  • Dinner from 8pm
  • Live Band/Dancing from 10-10.30pm
  • Carriages at midnight


We have lined up fantastic, local entertainment for the pleasure of our guests during the course of the evening.

Delta Events and Save the Date will provide some fabulous and photo worthy artwork and decorations for guests’ pleasure.  Who doesn’t love a 6ft golden Oscar? How about two?  STEP Guernsey will dress to impress in our new bigger venue – you won’t be disappointed.

We will be entertained by the talented Cheshire Dramatic Arts Academy throughout the evening.  There will be lights, camera and action as their actors sing, dance and play in true Hollywood style.

We will have a living photopod by the talented Evoke Photography as well as snaps throughout the night to record your memories of this wonderful evening.

After dinner we will be delighted to welcome local band Last of the Light Brigade to dance the night away!

Dress Code

Dress to impress! Black tie – rustle up your most glamorous attire – there’s no such thing as ‘too fancy‘.


Guests will be served a delicious 3 course meal during the course of the evening.  Dietary requirements can be accommodated and you can find the menu here – STEP Ball 2019 Menu.
