BRAT Club History in a Nutshell

The BRAT Ball was held on Saturday 27 April at Jurys Inn, Broad St and was a tremendous success with a ballroom full of BRATs enjoying a fine meal, one or two glasses of wine and dancing to live music into the early hours.

The evening was held to support the British Paralympic Association [www.paralympics.org.uk]. A charity auction, conducted with aplomb by the incredible Colin Irvine, saw a range of “money can’t buy” prizes raise over £1,000 for this excellent organisation.

Special mention also goes to Chris Davy, whose band the Reggaelators delivered a stellar set of ska and reggae classics, which got the party well and truly started. It is fair to say that the club has never witnessed such action on a dance floor!

Thank you to all who joined us to make this a fabulous evening for the club and a massive thanks to the members and club supporters who donated items for the charity auction:
