STEP Guernsey's Annual Ball is always a popular event.  Arguably the most exciting finance event in the Guernsey calendar, this year we are also celebrating our 25th anniversary and no expense has been spared in making it a memorable celebration.   

Friday 16th October 2020

The STEP Guernsey Annual Ball is the most hotly anticipated finance function in Guernsey’s calendar and is always a sell-out event.  We are so grateful that Guernsey has entered phase 5 of our exit from lockdown and that we can proceed with this event, bringing the fiduciary community together for our flagship social celebration.

We look forward to welcoming you to an evening of excellent food, fine wine and grand company.  The blank canvas offered by the Dave Ferguson Hall at Beau Sejour warrants a showstopping creation and this year will be no exception with our fire and ice theme.

The evening will follow an approximate running plan as follows;

  • Drinks reception from 7pm
  • Dinner from 8pm
  • Live Band/Dancing from 10.30pm
  • Carriages at 12.30am


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.  Sun scorched earth will meet crisp frozen landscape as STEP Guernsey once again dresses to impress – you won’t be disappointed.

We will welcome back our photo booth from Your Moments Captured for guests to record their memories of this wonderful evening.

After dinner we will be delighted to welcome local band Element 6 to dance the night away!

Dress Code

It’s a ball – dress to impress!  Black tie – rustle up your most glamorous attire.  If you wish to link your outfit into our fire and ice theme then please do!
