What happens on the night?

Never Mind the Business is a unique award winning fundraising event, which attracts over 760 guests each year.

The event, which is strictly jeans and t-shirt, starts with a drinks reception where guests get into the competitive spirit by mixing with other teams. This is followed by our multi-media, fast paced quiz, dinner, auctions, raffle and, of course, entertainment by our surprise band.


Over the years, bands have included artists such as Katrina and The Waves, The Bluebells, The Bay City Rollers, G.U.N, Alvin Stardust, Heaven 17, Heather Small, Toploader, KT Tunstall, The Hoosiers and most recently The South (formally The Beautiful South).

Raise money for a fantastic cause

This is not only a great way for entertaining staff and engaging with clients, all proceeds raised on the night will go towards helping Action for Children continue delivering ground breaking services across the UK.
