2023 Brunswick Ball: A Wrap Up

Held on Thursday 15 June 2023, at the iconic Brunswick Ballroom, the Brunswick Ball welcomed over 230 people as they came together to celebrate Sydney Road Brunswick, the business community and of course the extremely talented local band Calum’s Young and Old Codgers, and headliners – Jazzparty.

Attendees were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival, roving canapes, a photobooth to their hearts content and of course the joy of great music, great company and a stella night.

The Brunswick Ball also featured a runway competition – with over 30 participants vying for Best Dressed, which given the impressive nature of everyone in attendance, was a real test for the Judges to assess! Participants strutted their stuff along the catwalk, each interpreting their own personas into a unique stride and performance as they competed not only for the judges, but also for the warm applause and encouragement of the crowd. Judges of the catwalk, after much deliberation, awarded Best Dressed to number 14, Steph! With equally impressive runner ups, Lou and Ava. As the winner of the catwalk competition, Steph was awarded a $100 voucher to a Sydney Road Brunswick business of her choosing – which she was absolutely thrilled with.

Conducted by the Sydney Road Brunswick Association (SRBA), the event also had a strong business and precinct focus, with contributions from 40 Sydney Road Brunswick businesses towards the retail display in the room and supporting video, pre-event incentive promotions and of course, the absolutely loaded Sydney Road Brunswick tote bags that were given out at the end of the night to all attendees.

In addition to the generous contributions directly from businesses, attendees also left with their own complete guides for everything Sydney Road Brunswick including food, drink and fun; professional and health services, secondhand and vintage, and more!

Events are always made better with prizes, and this event was no different! Towards the end of the night, one lucky raffle winner also took home a hamper filled with Sydney Road Brunswick goodies – including famed Sydney Road Brunswick t-shirts, tote and jigsaw puzzle (perfect for the winter months).

Beaming from the success of the 2023 Brunswick Ball, planning is already underway for next year’s event – which promises to be just as great, if not better! We can’t wait to welcome you again next year.

See you in 2024.
