"The Primrose Ball began with an excitable idea, in my front room, whilst holding a local support group meeting. I had buried the seed of the idea for some time and with encouragement of my peers the very first Primrose Ball was held in 2015; and what a ball we had! Raising £1500 for charity and launching what would be an annual event for Endometriosis Awareness" - Michelle Middleton
The Primrose Ball is all about sharing information and making connections with others from all area's of Endometriosis diagnosis and care, in an environment where there is no taboo, no embarrassment or frustration at not being heard and understood. Our aim to have a really special and memorable night that inspires hope for a positive future ; and of course we aim to raise much needed funds for Endometriosis UK.
The inaugural ball was held on the 7th March 2015, with just over 100 tickets it was a sell out! Hosted by Michelle Middleton and Rosalind Kirkham, the evening was spectacular and raised over £1500 for Endometriosis UK.
The Primrose Ball 2016
Our second ball continued the success of our first ball, held on the 5th March 2016 we raised around £800 for EUK and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves whilst doing so. Did anyone say Primbola?
The Primrose Ball 2017
Masquerade! March 4th 2017, hosted by Michelle Middleton, this ball was slightly different from the others, due to my ill health post surgery, and although ticket sales were 20% down on previous years, unfortunately affecting the overall money raised, I can say with heartfelt honestly it was the most successful of all! we had a blast and Endometriosis did not beat us! Feeling the love for all that is Primrose!
