The BFPA Dorchester Ball has since 1961 been a solid item in the annual calendar. The 2012 event was no exception and the redecorated Dorchester Ballroom was filled to capacity with those BFPA/DA members who booked sufficiently early to guarantee tickets, our sincere apologies to those who missed out.

One of the significant changes in recent years is attendance by a much wider cross section of the Association membership, with many of the smaller members recognising the event as a first class networking opportunity in a most enjoyable situation.
As has been mentioned elsewhere our longstanding Toastmaster and MC, Mr Bryn Williams was in charge for the last time as he is taking retirement, and we all wish him a long and content future.
The classic format of the BFPA Ball is something which seems to survive generation after generation and there are no plans to change this highly successful format. All member companies are welcome as are their guests, some of which use the event to entertain customers with something slightly different and others to thank key members of staff, but whatever the reason being in the room is an experience not to be missed. However early booking is advised to avoid disappointment!!
