The Professional 100 Club hosts exclusive event at Northern Ballet Headquarters

Northern Ballet’s iconic Quarry Hill headquarters turned red recently for the Professional 100 Club’s Chinese New Year themed annual dinner. The Professional 100 Club is an independent corporate networking group for young professionals from various companies and industries across Leeds.

The Club, which has over 150 members and celebrates its 23rd birthday this year, is a non-profit organisation led by a committee of like-minded individuals seeking the opportunity to develop confidence in networking skills and build a contact base within the Leeds corporate market place. The events hosted by the Professional 100 Club are designed to provide informal but organised networking. Each year the club organises six social events for its members with their latest being held at Northern Ballet.

Northern Ballet worked closely with the Professional 100 Club to deliver a memorable evening. Students from the Academy of Northern Ballet performed for the guests with additional entertainment provided in the form of a Chinese Lion by Six Harmonies Lion Dance Crew, who led the call to dinner.  

An authentic three course Chinese banquet was provided by Catering Yorkshire and the Leeds University Business School Confucius Institute supplied traditional Chinese dress, opera masks and lanterns with demonstrations of traditional Chinese calligraphy.  

Sophia, a committee member from the Professional 100 Club said: “I cannot praise the efforts of Northern Ballet and their team enough. They did not just host our dinner; they helped provide a spectacle for our guests. Every detail of the evening was considered and planned with us and they did all they could to make the process as easy and stress free as possible. They proposed some fantastic elements to help enhance the evening. Their added partnership with Catering Yorkshire (a company with an ethos for locally sourced produce) was attractive to our organisation given that the Professional 100 Club are embedded in developing the Yorkshire market. I urge any business or organisation to consider their services for corporate hospitality and entertainment.”  

Northern Ballet’s state-of-the-art building in Leeds city-centre is the ideal venue for a variety of formal and informal events. The building features seven versatile studio spaces that can be used for multiple purposes, a fifth floor Board Suite with panoramic views across Leeds, two meeting rooms, a number of break-out areas and a 230-seat studio theatre perfect for gala dinners, conferences and performances. Catering and entertainment options can also be arranged.
