This Summer, Port Sunlight Village Trust (PSVT) is hosting a commemorative summer ball, 100 years since it took place in the village. The Peace Celebration Ball will take place on Thursday 8th August 2019 at Hulme Hall with Chester-based solicitors, Cullimore Dutton, announced as headline sponsor.

The date marks the 100th anniversary of the Port Sunlight Peace Celebration Ball, following the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919 and the official end of the First World War. It also represents the conclusion of PSVT’s First World War centenary programme which opened with the Great Send Off in September 2014.

Guests will enjoy an evening of superb food, drink and entertainment provided by The Gatsby Swing Jazz Quartet. The event will raise funds for the restoration, maintenance and interpretation of Port Sunlight’s monuments, including the Grade-I listed war memorial ‘Defence of the Home’.

PSVT has also secured a number of associate sponsors including Liverpool-based chartered accountants Duncan Sheard Glass, Liverpool-based creative agency Kaleidoscope and Port Sunlight-based architectural practice Paddock Johnson Partnership.

Tickets cost £50 each and include a welcome drink and three course meal with coffee. Tables seating up to 10 guests are available to purchase. To raise additional funds there will also be a raffle and auction on the night.

Tickets can be purchased direct from PSVT:
