The Annual Mayor's Charitable Ball

Party streamer

As has been the tradition for many years, the current Mayor of Preston is hosting the annual Mayor's Charitable Ball. This year, as the nation welcomes a new King, it will be titled the Coronation Ball.

The Ball is another longstanding Prestonian tradition and is arranged to say thank you to all the local mayors and people of Preston and raise funds for good causes.

The Coronation Ball

The Mayor's Coronation Charity Ball takes place on 29 April 2023 at UCLan in the heart of Preston. Tickets are available for £45, or tables of ten can be booked for £400.

Parking will be available on the UCLan Leighton Street car parks.

Event sponsors and visiting dignitaries will receive an automatic invitation.

The Ball Reception will take place from 7pm in the Foster Building. Entertainment will be provided by the Intact Centre Choir, who performed to great acclaim for the Carols in the Chamber event at Christmas last year.

Guests will be seated in the main hall from 7.30pm where they will be served a delicious, local sourced three course meal. The menu will be confirmed shortly and will be a choice between vegetarian or non-vegetarian options.

Following dinner, there will be a raffle and charity auction, followed by live entertainment and dancing until midnight. Entertainment will be provided by vocalist and DJ Callum Thomas with a series of live performance sets, and magician Paul Sylvester who will provide entertainment at the tables.

All proceeds will go to the Mayoral Charities, the Intact Centre and the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Charity.


Principle sponsorship is priced at £1,000 and sponsors will be named on all material along with a table of ten.

The more sponsorship we can secure, the more funds will go to the Mayoral Charities. Should you require further information, please email:
