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

    The Great Ormond St. Children's Hospital

     Christmas Party Décor Class

    with Christopher Horne of Amscan International

    & Sue Bowler CBA of Qualatex.

    This really is a one of a kind opportunity!

    This is a registration to enter the draw.  This year to be fair to all of our members we are allowing you to register and after registration closes on 30th September 2014 we will draw 25 names from the registrants to decide who will have the opportunity to take part in this great day. 

    On Monday 15thDecember 2014 BAPIA (with the fantastic support of Amscan, Qualatex and BOC) 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 2 of the industry's leading instructors and designers, Christopher Horne of Amscan International and Sue Bowler CBA sponsored by Qualatex.

    Both Christopher and Sue are universally acknowledged not only as 2 of the best instructors that the balloon industry has seen but also as fantastic designers who have created designs that are replicated daily around the world.

    Delegates will have access to photographs of the completed décor for use in their own portfolio and will also receive a personal letter of thanks from Great Ormond St. 

    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 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 best charities and the chance to work with the 2 leading instructors from the 2 leading balloon manufacturers and the opportunity to add some superb images to your own portfolio, supported by a letter of thanks.

    We will be charging £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.

    Date: Monday 15th December 2014

    Start: 9.30 am (refreshments from 9.00am)
