The Firecracker Ball is one of our favourite annual events, and here at Source we are once again incredibly proud to be providing the marketing support for this, the most lavish of Yorkshire’s black tie balls.

Now in its 16th year the Firecracker Ball, which this year takes place on November 11th at Rudding Park Hotel, has to date raised over £2 million for Barnardo’s – including an astonishing £285,000 in 2016.

We’ve been confirmed as marketing sponsor for the third consecutive year, with one of our directors, Martha Phillips again sitting on the Firecracker Ball planning committee. Other sponsors include Evans Property Group, Phillip Stoner the Jeweller and Team Print Services.

Martha said: “Not only is the Firecracker Ball one of the biggest and best annual events in Yorkshire, but the money raised changes the lives of thousands of children and young people across the region. It’s an absolute privilege to be involved once again.”

The Firecracker Ball takes place every November in a huge themed marquee attached to Rudding Park Hotel. In 2016, the 720 guests were treated to a night at the circus, with the inside of the marquee transformed into an amazingly detailed big top, complete with circus performers, Ringmaster and entertainment from girl-band, All Saints.

The Firecracker Ball committee is keen to hear from individuals and businesses in the region who are interested in sponsorship packages, or donating auction or other prizes for the night. For more information contact Kirsty Guy 01748 821295 or or visit
