Manchester High School for Girls

Bursary Ball 2019 tickets on sale NOW!

The highlight of the Manchester High School for Girls social calendar, the Bursary Ball, is back with a bang!

Tickets are now on sale for this glittering event, which takes place on Saturday 29th June at the Grade II listed Principal Hotel in Manchester.

It’s a time for the Manchester High community of parents and alumnae to come together for a sparkling drinks reception, three-course meal, great entertainment from our pupils and dancing until the early hours with music from The Principal’s resident DJ.

The ever-popular, and always highly contested, ‘money can’t buy’ auction will be back and we are thrilled to announce that our hosts this year are Becky Cahill and Mike Toolan of Hits Radio.

Tickets for this black tie evening are £65 each or £600 for a table of 10 and all proceeds go towards the School’s Pankhurst Bursary Appeal.

Book your tickets now!

We would like as many members of the MHSG community to join us on the night, parents, alumnae and friends of the School. Please don't be shy if you have never attended one of our social events before, everyone is welcome, whether you wish to come as an individual, couple or group of friends.

Exciting auction and raffle prizes really do help us generate significant funds on the night. If you, or your business, are able to provide an auction or raffle prize, please contact Mrs Lex Robinson on the contact details below.

Please also contact Lex if you would like to place an advertisement in the official souvenir programme; a full-page colour advertisement is £250.
