You are cordially invited to The Banana Crumb-Ball...

by Banana Crumble | Jun 22, 2019

We are really pleased to announce that Banana Crumble are going to be hosting a Banana Crumb-Ball to raise money for our local Cystic Fibrosis Group – The Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association.

The event is on Saturday 5th October 2019 and will be held at :

The Grand Marquee which is at the Halfway House, Brentwood, Essex. CM13 3LL
This is at the junction of the A127 and A128

I know that we have members from all over the country but if any of you that are Essex based and fancy the chance to put on a dinner suit or posh frock then look no further it would be great if you could come and join us and to help raise funds to help with the fight for Cystic Fibrosis. Tickets are £50 a head and it includes a three course meal, welcome drinks, entertainment from The Hugh Rainey Dixieland Jazz Band as well as sessions with a DJ. The event is 7 for a 7.30 sit down and carriages are at 1am.

Tables take between 8 and 12 people so if you can sort out a table then this would be great. If you can’t get a full table don’t worry we will be able to find a table for you to join.

We are also planning on running a raffle, some table games and an auction on the evening to raise money for The Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association. Auction prizes include: Mascot and game package (total of 4 tickets) for Southend United versus Ipswich Town on 26th October donated by Fairfield BMW, Audi car experience donated by Southend Audi, British Touring Car Championships at Brands Hatch hospitality package for four people as guests of the Pirtek Racing Team on Sunday 13th October plus many more great auction prizes. If you want to see a full list email us.  If you are interested then please contact us at:

We will definitely feature some photos and written reports about the evening and hope that we are able to raise money for a great cause.
