A Masquerade Ball made love with a Festival. Let us tell you the story of the Sen Ball.
A MASQUERADE BALL MADE LOVE WITH A FESTIVAL
The Sen Ball is a Masquerade Ball with a difference, an event the likes of which our great town has never seen before. Bringing together the best bits of the world-famous White Parties, but corrupting them with passion, vitality and exuberance. It’s a Ball, in that there will be a big 9 piece band with brass horns and deep bass, but it’s also a festival, a festival of ecstatic delights. A full sensory experience.
THE DEVIL MET THE ANGEL AND GAVE US 48 WATT ST
The two stages at 48 Watt St keep a neat line between the two main themes. In the white hall, we have a classic masquerade room lined with drapery and filled with the sound of a big band where couples can salsa and groups can swing dance. The main church hall is more subversive with red lights and smoke machines filtering the colours of the stained glass windows over the mass of bodies dressed in red, black and white. Up one end of the church, the DJ is flanked by exotic performers, fire eaters and burlesque dancers. Joining the two halls is the Atrium, set up as a full cocktail lounge bar with decadent grazing tables and a full bar with the drinks flowing smoothly all night long.
THE EVENT WE'VE ALL BEEN CRAVING
Newcastle needs an exclusively adult event, where people can party in class and extravagance. Book the babysitter early, coordinate with your friends and romantic partners - because this is a traffic light party with a difference. It is a new party with an old inspiration. Bacchanalias of Ancient Rome were known as Festivals of Ecstatic Pleasures worshipping Bacchus the god of wine and revelry. His following was the maenads who would take over a town, let loose and let the passion of the moment overwhelm and consume them. The Sen Ball follows this inspiration and is taking over Newcastle, revitalising it with passion and hedonistic delight. But it’s not a gratuitously sexy event. It’s elegant, like the devil with velvet gloves on. It is high class meets sensual revelry.
Sen Events and Newcastle Connections wanted a party where everyone was welcome, everyone could dress up and feel indulgent, where connections could blossom between singles and friends and couples could have the night to remember (and not tell their grandchildren about…)
Mystery, adventure, revelry, sexy intensity, elegance.
Are you ready to be bold? Come, revel, relish.
