Townsville City’s social calendar is about to light up most vibrantly as the annual Not-A-Ball event returns on Saturday, November 4 2023, at the Quayside Terminal. It’s a ball, but with a twist that makes it stand out in Townsville’s event scene.

A Night of Tropical Bliss and Giving Back

As the sun sets over the picturesque town of Townsville, guests will step into a festive carnival-themed extravaganza, celebrating the best of tropical North Queensland. Not-a-Ball offers a delightful escape from the ordinary, a night filled with vibrant colours, dazzling jewels, and beautiful feathers.

Shining Bright for a Noble Cause

This year, Not-a-Ball goes beyond just a night of glitz and glamour. It’s a night of giving back, with funds raised to acquire a new laser for treating children who have experienced burns. This noble cause adds a meaningful touch to the event, ensuring that guests not only have a great time but also contribute to a vital community cause.

A Night of Entertainment, Auctions, and Culinary Delights

Not-a-Ball promises non-stop entertainment featuring raffles, auctions, great food, and dancing. The event ticket includes delectable canapés and a drink on arrival. For those looking for a little extra, there’s a cash bar with a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available throughout the night.

A Relaxed and Inclusive Atmosphere

The event adopts a cocktail-style setting with ample seating, eliminating the need to reserve tables. Whether you’re coming solo, as a couple, or with a group of friends, everyone is welcome to join in the fun.

The dress code is ‘Dress to impress’ (Creative Black Tie), ensuring guests wear their most glamorous attire. Please note that this event is strictly for those aged 18 and above.
