Leeds Mad Hatter’s Summer Ball 2013
On 7 June, the Leeds JLD, sponsored by BCL Legal, held their annual summer ball. This year there was a bit of a twist with an Alice in Wonderland theme! We were genuinely impressed by the effort and attention to detail that had gone into the event; playing cards, bunting, down the rabbit hole signs, wall clocks, teacups, balloons and flamingos (!) were just a few of the items adorning the hall in the Leeds Met Hotel. The ball was attended by over a 100 of Leeds’ up and coming lawyers and a great night was had by all.
There was a great array of mad hats on show on the evening and via our twitter page, the photo of the ‘maddest hatter’ won a £75 slap up meal on BCL Legal. The venue was packed full and the food was excellent. The band got everyone up on the dance floor in record time and the dancing didn’t stop until the small hours of the morning!
The JLD’s nominated charity, Martin House also ran a raffle with the prize being a car!
As always, the committee members themselves were on top form and we would urge anyone not already actively involved with the JLD to take part in the numerous events they hold – it’s great for networking, for your CV and most importantly great fun. We certainly can’t wait until the next event.
