Higgs & Sons Winter Ball 2016: ‘Through the Decades’
On Friday 15th January, the Higgs & Sons Annual Winter Ball took place. We made our way to the WV1 Suite at the Molineux Stadium, in order to celebrate the beginning of what promises to be another successful and prosperous year ahead for Higgs.
The ball was themed 'through the decades', and we were prompted to don our finest fancy dress attire to reflect an era from the past. The Corporate/Commercial team decided to opt for a 70's theme, sporting their finest flares and garish shirts. The Family team decided to embrace the roaring 20's and there were tassels and feather boas galore.
Nick Moxon was the evening's designated speaker, delivering a fantastic speech on the many successes seen by the firm throughout 2015. Unfortunately, a number of technical issues meant that the impressive video montage created by Business Services had to be cut short. After many attempts by IT Services to resolve the issue, we decided to ditch the video footage and proceed to devour our three-course meals and make good use of the evening's free bar.
Following dinner, the festivities began. We drank our drinks and headed for the dance floor. The boys of IT Services were the first to heat up the dance floor, followed by a showcase of some very questionable choreography from the Corporate/Commercial Team.
The less brave ones among us headed for the photo booth, where we posed for silly photos with various funky props and hats. We were also treated to a retro sweet stand which was cleared out quite early on in the evening!
The trainees that have been selected for 2016 entry also attended the ball and it was a great opportunity to get to know each of them, prior to them joining Higgs later on this year.
A truly fantastic night was had by all and we cannot wait for the next one!
