Winter Ball Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Winter Ball?

The Winter Ball is presented by Stepping Forward UK and seven partner charities in the Reading area, allowing the charities to have a great party and share the fantastic facilities at the Hilton Hotel Reading.

How do I get a ticket?

Stepping Forward UK and the seven partner charities are selling tickets to raise funds. You should contact the charity whose tables you would like to join, or contact us if you would like to buy a complete table package.

What’s included in the ticket price?

The ticket entitles you to a drink on arrival, a seat at a table for the night, a superb three course meal, entertainment by our host and the band, and you will be able to dance the night away. Drinks with your meal are not included but available to purchase from the bar.

What should I wear?

The Winter Ball is a fancy affair but there is not a strict dress code. There will be a photographer at the event to take pictures should you wish to have a formal or informal portrait, so you should wear what you feel comfortable in.

Can I bring alcohol to the event?

All drinks must be purchased from the bar on the night (except for your complementary arrival drink). Should you be lucky enough to win an alcoholic prize in our glamorous charity tombola, we ask that you wait until you get home before you open it.
