Rossall celebrates its 175th Anniversary with a spectacular ball

Rossall School hosted a star studded Ball to celebrate its 175th Anniversary and raise money for its new 2500sq metre Sports Centre.

Three hundred former pupils, parents and friends of the School gathered for pre-reception drinks, before being lead to the School Dining Hall for the big reveal. The Dining Hall had been transformed into a glamourised Rossall Through the Ages, with memorabilia scattered, a library of historical pictures projected on the high walls and even a science experiment for guests to perform on their table.

It was a real community event and made possible by support from a number of local companies. Lighting, sound & stage design was courtesy of Knight Rigging Services of Blackpool. The fabulous Twelve Restaurant, Thornton, served dinner, and music was courtesy of local musicians the Ian Hooper band. There was also almost 60 fabulous prizes auctioned, all generously gifted by Lancashire enterprises and businesspersons.

Throughout the meal, guests were treated to performances by television and musical star Mazz Murray, who has just been announced as the West End lead in Mamma Mia! Mazz entertained and wowed the audience with a number of musical hits spanning 175 years.

The evening raised a fabulous £35,000 for the new Sport Centre which houses the North West’s first indoor hockey facility, a four-lane 50m sprint track, a long jump track, gym and a viewing gallery. As well as enhancing Rossall facilities for the pupils the Centre will also be open for wider community groups to use, including Wyre Netball.
