About the Mud Lovers Ball

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

The Mud Lovers Ball came about when Muddy Matches co-founders Lucy & Emma decided they were tired of going to parties and balls where you only end up chatting to people you already know and that it was about time that someone launched a new breed of countryside-focused social event that placed an emphasis on meeting new people. Now in its third year, the ball seems to be going from strength to strength with hundreds of people travelling from across the UK and Ireland for this annual knees-up.

Book alone or with friends?

A large number of guests book on and attend the event alone, confident that lots of people will be in the same boat and they will have many opportunities to meet new people, both at the Pre-Ball Activity arranged by Muddy Matches (this year it’s a clay shoot) or at the ball itself with the welcome drinks and mixed table seating plans that provide initial introductions, as well as many other ice-breaking ideas throughout the evening which give you the opportunity and confidence to chat to other people.

Equally, many people get a group together and book with their friends, either spreading out over different Mixed Tables so they all meet as many new people as possible, or booking Private Tables and organising their own seating plans.

If you’re thinking about booking and undecided about what option would suit you best, give us a ring on +44(0)1933 311500 or email events@muddymatches.co.uk and we would be happy to discuss it with you.

Make a weekend of it

Knowing that a lot of you will have to come a long way to attend, we are doing everything we can to make it worth the journey. Not only will it be a cracking night, but we are also organising a couple of other events to encourage you to stay for the whole weekend, so why not join us for our Pre-Ball Clay Shoot on Saturday and/or our Post-Ball Lunch on the Sunday.
