About the ball.

The Ball, that is being held in Chester Cathedral, is different to the normal concept of a Ball as it will be inclusive and reach out and welcome all the communities of Chester, ethnic, religious, ability/disability, sexual orientation etc. It will celebrate our differences as equals.

The Diversity Ball will include a diversity fashion show, singing in sign language, orchestras, bands, Djs etc etc It will highlight our different communities and bring them together, as one.

It will take place on the evening of the 22 May 2020, in the Nave, Chapter House, South Transept, Refectory and Cloisters of the cathedral.

The Diversity Ball is a registered charity and has received support from past and current Lord Mayors, the leader of the council, Eaton estate in the form of the Duke’s PA, Chris Matheson MP and the Dean of Chester Cathedral, the University of Chester, as well as many associations and individuals that support the aims of the ball.

Why the ball

The UK is facing a crisis of division and we desperately need landmark events that will act as signposts to unite us. The Diversity Ball fulfils the aim directly by tackling and overcoming the divisions that are separating us in a forthright and highly visible way. 

Further, with constraints on local authority funds we need to extend our support for local organisations that are working to support our diverse communities.

Finally, as the first Diversity Ball in the UK of this nature it will act to put Chester as a leading city for tolerance and inclusion, much as the city has become a leader in access.
