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.
We will be providing the photo booth again so that you can pick up a great memento of the evening.
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.
You get a lot for your ticket at the St Patrick’s Day Ball! – Including pre-dinner entertainment and drinks, great food, 2 brilliant bands, and a late licence until 3am (All for £95 per head!).
We will also be offering a limited number of tickets for 18-23 year olds at £75 per head – these are subject to availability and on a first come, first served basis.
