    Register now to be in the draw to take part in:

    The Great Ormond St. Children's Hospital

     Christmas Party Décor Class 2017


    This really is a one of a kind opportunity!

    This is a registration to enter the draw.  Once again this year to be fair to all of our members we are asking you to register first and after registration closes on 31st October 2017 we will draw 25 names from the registrants to decide who will have the opportunity to take part in this great day. 

    On Monday 11th December 2017, BAPIA (with the fantastic support of Amscan, Qualatex, BOC and others to be confirmed) is sponsoring the décor for the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital Christmas Party and we are offering 25 BAPIA members the opportunity to take part in this class with some great instructors to build fantastic party decor for the children.

    This is now our 5th year organising this event decor and it has proven to also be a great networking opportunity for the delegates both during the class and afterwards as we all relax with a drink.  

    Delegates will have access to photographs of the completed décor for use in their own portfolio.

    This is no ordinary party décor, due to allergy concerns for some of the youngsters, we are restricted to using only non-latex balloons and the décor will have to survive 4 separate parties over the following 2 days.  As some children cannot leave the hospital they will not be able to attend the parties, so we have to make some of the décor moveable so the staff and volunteers can “take the party to the children” afterwards.

    This party is supported not only by some of the country’s top companies but is always attended by an array of celebrities (who take 2nd place to Santa) and we want to make sure that this party is the best decorated in town!

    So don't miss this opportunity to support one of the country’s leading children's charities and the chance to work with some great instructors from the leading balloon manufacturers as well as the opportunity to add some superb images to your own portfolio.

    There will be a charge of £35 for the day.  This will also include a Pizza lunch and refreshments.  Any funds left-over will then be donated to GOSH along with a single donation from BAPIA.

    This is a 100% charitable event with all goods and services for the décor supplied free of charge.

    This class is NOT suitable for beginners, all delegates must have attended a basic/fundamental balloon course as a minimum.
