Last month Big Cat delivered the inaugural Harry Moseley Charity Ball at Birmingham’s ICC, with the aim to raise money for the charity and local community initiatives.

The ball was held in memory of Harry Moseley, who created a remarkable legacy before he died, raising money to help fellow cancer sufferers by engaging in celebrity endorsement and making beaded bracelets.

Big Cat are proud to report that we worked closely with multiple parties to deliver a memorable event programme that managed to exceed all expectations by raising over a staggering £100,000 for the charity through auctions, raffles, pledges, donations and ticket sales.

Our events team were required to put together and follow a complex call sheet that accommodated a minute by minute running order of the ball from 2pm to 5am the next day. Big Cat’s key responsibilities at the ball consisted of the curation of multiple presentation inputs, staging, music, lighting and show calling. We also organised third party supplier negotiation with celebrity talent, speakers, photographers, sponsors, musicians and performers, as well as running an after party at Marco Pierre White’s bar in The Cube.

The ball encouraged an unbelievable amount of support with 1,250 guests in attendance, and the support from top celebrities such as John Terry, Beverly Knight, Harry Potter stars James and Oliver Phelps, Ben Shephard, Adam Rickitt, Danielle Lloyd and Free Radio broadcasters Tom Ross and Russ Morris (to name a few!) who accompanied Olympic heroes, businesses and ordinary families in the attendance of the ball.

The remarkable support of the HHHO charity ball made it the largest event to occur at the ICC this year, and resulted in its success being commemorated in extensive press coverage from publications such as the Birmingham Mail, Midlands Business News, The Birmingham Post and OK magazine.

Big Cat’s CEO, Nick Morgan commented; ‘It was a privilege to deliver such a prestigious event for Birmingham. The amount of money made and the support that the event incurred is a testament to what Harry achieved when he was alive. We are looking forward to working with the Help Harry Help Others charity at other events in the future.’
