The Black & White Ball – Meetdraw Christmas 2018

6th December 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7th December 2018 @ 12:00 am


By now you should know what Meetdraw is all about – four social events a year for the good people of the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area working in and around the digital creative community.

If not, well now’s the perfect opportunity to come along and rub shoulders with your digital peers!

This Christmas we’re taking over the fabulous Banque & Bohem Cocktail Bar on Poole Hill in Bournemouth on Thursday December 6th from 6pm till late. The theme is “The Black & White Ball”, with more of an emphasis on the black and white than the ball.

The dress code is just that – black and white. You wanna rock a full tux? Go for it. Prefer to slum it in jeans and a hoodie? Fine by us, as long as it’s all black and white!

Ball gowns, dressing downs, hospital gowns, frock coats, stuffed stoats, wolf fleece, bed sheets, skirt pleats, kilts, stilts, dungarees (yes please!), socks to the knees, bootlace ties, neck ties, bow ties, strapless dresses, string vests and everything inbetween.

(as long as it’s black and white)

On the night there’ll be a glass of bubbly on the door, canapés (including vegan options) and live entertainment. Not too shabby, eh? We hope you’ll appreciate that as a fully volunteer-run venture, Meetdraw sometimes needs to lean on the generosity of sponsors and occasionally attach a cost to tickets for special events like this. As such, we think a crisp tenner (plus the Eventbrite fee) is a small price to pay to spend a decadent evening among such skilled and, dare we say it, beautiful individuals such as your good self.

So there we have it. Thursday December 6th, 2018. The Meetdraw Christmas Black & White Ball. Banque & Bohem, Poole Hill, Bournemouth BH2 5PW. 6pm till late.

Be there. Wear black. Or white. Or black and white. Just be there!

The venue

“Banque and Bohem is a simmering locale of exotic and British cuisine that focuses on locally sourced, organic produce. An elegant and venturous addition to Bournemouth’s dining scene, this vibrant and quirky venue promises to capture the palate, and your imagination. Through the daytime you can enjoy fresh vegetarian, vegan and fully laden breakfasts and bottomless prosecco brunches. Full service lunches are served from midday and the a la carte menu from 4pm. The charcuterie bar menu is always open for those who just love to prop up the bar and sip and nibble all day long. Are you also a fan of incredible cocktails? If so then you’re in the right place…” (https://www.bournemouth.co.uk/food-and-drink/banque-and-bohem-p2382343) (https://banqueandbohem.co.uk/)
