About The Ball

The Edinburgh St Patrick’s Day Charity Ball is an annual event which takes place at the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa. The Ball first started after the Irish Consulate opened its doors here in 1998 and quickly became one of the main social occasions for the Irish community (and it’s friends) in the city. Over the years, the diversity of our guests has increased and we welcome an ever-growing variety of nationalities determined become a little bit greener on the inside for this one special night a year!

It is a fantastic night full of glamour (Black Tie), great food and drink, fabulous entertainment and most of all good craic. Our guests have a great time from 7pm until 3am and we also raise money for local homeless charities through a fantastic raffle and auction.

Great Food!
The Sheraton’s Executive Chef Craig Hart and his team always produce a great combination of courses to complement the evening. The quality of the food is a key ingredient to making the St Patrick’s Day Ball such a great event.
Great Music!
We have two great bands for your evening’s entertainment. Starting the night off we have A-Side Soul – an eight-piece band with a big brass section sure to fill the dance floor from the get-go. We also welcome back Folkin’ Shenanigans to kick off the sing songs and jigs when we open the “Irish Bar” at 1am.
Great Craic!
Having a great time is what the night is all about! Whether you are catching up with old friends or making new ones – we are sure that you be will be havin’ the craic late into the night…

The Schedule

St Patrick's Day Charity Ball

Welcome Address, Irish Dancers & Reception Dinner

Charity Auction & Raffle

It’s the time of the night when we raise some cash for our chosen homeless charities through our auction and raffle prizes. Don’t worry, we are well aware that you have been sitting for a while now and can’t wait to hit the dance floor, so the auction just usually consists 3 lots and only the grand raffle prize is drawn in public.
10:25 PM - 12:45 AM/ 24.03.2018

Main Entertainment - A-Side Soul

In true Paddy’s Ball tradition we have a big band with a big sound (and of course a mighty brass section!). A-Side Soul are sure to keep the dance floor full throughout the night.

After all that dancing you’re sure to have worked up an appetite, so we provide bacon rolls and egg rolls along with the usual helpings of bags of Tayto crisps.
1:30 AM - 3:00 AM/ 24.03.2018

Irish Pub Band - Folkin’ Shenanigans

Rab and Jayne are back once more, banging out their classic Irish and Scottish tunes to keep the dancing and singing going into the wee hours – a brilliant way to finish the night.

Our Designated Charity

St Catherine's Homeless Project

The ethos of the St Patrick’s Day Ball, as well as obviously providing a great night’s entertainment, has always been to try and give something back to the local community that has welcomed so many of us with open arms and helped us call this great city ‘home’. We are acutely aware however that there are those who are far less fortunate with their own living arrangements here and that is why the event has always used this opportunity to raise money to help the homeless in Edinburgh. This year will be no different and our Designated Charity will again be St Catherine’s Homeless Project – they do incredible work, relying solely on donations and with a team of over 150 volunteers, provide 200 meals a day, five days a week.

From time to time, the Ball selects an additional local homeless charity to support – further details will be advised here if applicable.
