Northern Ballet's Celebration Dinners

Fundraising event


Northern Ballet's Celebration Dinners

5 and 6 May 2022 | Northern Ballet, Leeds


We first took to the stage as a Company on 28 November 1969 and we cannot wait to celebrate five decades of Northern Ballet magic with you as we look ahead to an exciting future under the direction of our new Artistic Director, Federico Bonelli.

Join us for an incredible evening of music, dinner and dance, as we introduce Federico as our new Artistic Director!

For two nights only the stage will be set for a spectacular event featuring a unique programme of performances from our world-class dancers, alongside a three-course dinner and the opportunity to bid on exclusive prizes.

As we look back with great pride at how the Company has grown, we also look ahead to a bright future filled with new opportunities. Our Celebration Dinners will raise funds to help us continue to push boundaries and break down barriers to dance with our work on stage and screen, in our Academy, and through our outreach projects.

We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped us on our way so far and we hope you will join us for this special celebration to support our mission to share the joy of ballet with everyone, everywhere.

This event has now sold out.
