After our last few St Andrew's Balls in London in 2014 and 2016, we are thrilled to be moving our venue to Scotland for our 2017 ball, this time in the rather spectacular National Museum of Scotland, in Edinburgh. This year we have teamed up with another wonderful charity, the Teapot Trust, which provides art therapy in hospitals and other medical settings across the UK as a way of helping young people cope with long term medical conditions. Proceeds from the event will be split evenly between the two charities and we are delighted to be partnering with such an important charity. 


Dancing will again be to the wonderful Super Grouse band who have promised to help people unsure of the reels on the night.


A few notes to help with booking:

    Accommodation: there are many prestigious hotels close to the National Museum of Scotland including the Balmoral and Caledonian Hotels. However, Hotel Indigo on York Place has not only supported us with a generous auction prize but is offering 10% of the flexible rate at the time of booking. Just call 0131 556 5577 and quote St Andrew’s Ball discount offer.

  • Dress Code: Highland Dress / Black Tie
  • Carriages: the bar will close and dancing will finish by 11:30pm – the venue must be

    cleared by midnight

Upcoming Events

Please Contact Us if you want to organise something in Jo's memory and need any help. If you are considering an individual event like running a marathon, or sitting in a bath of beans for a day, you can register with MyDonate to collect your sponsorship online. The Jo Walters Trust has registered with MyDonate, because they do not charge commission so every penny that you raise from your efforts supports one of our projects.

BT MyDonate can be a little clunky to use though, and is less well known, so if you'd prefer to use JustGiving to do your fundraising, this is possible too. Just let us know that you'd like to do so and we'll activate the Jo Walters Trust page for you to use. JustGiving charge charities £15 a month to be on their register, so we only activate the Jo Walters Trust page when someone is actually fundraising.
