The Arlington Ballroom Noughty 90's Event

Step back in time and relive the magic of the 90s and 00s at The Arlington Ballroom’s Noughty 90’s event. Get ready to dance the night away as we bring you the best hits from two iconic decades. Do not miss your chance to grab a ticket and experience the ultimate throwback party.

Charity Auctions and Galas

Everyone loves the excuse to get dressed up for a good cause! We regularly host charity nights and galas such as Alfie’s Ball in 2018, which raised £5,000 for Southend Hospital.

Celebration Lunches & Dinners

Whether it’s a christening, a refined anniversary celebration or a birthday lunch, we can cater for you (minimum numbers apply). From a sit-down meal to a hot & cold finger buffet, we can tailor a menu to your needs (including vegan and free-from). We’re happy to put together a themed menu such as Italian, Tex Mex, or afternoon teas with a selection of sumptuous sandwiches and pastries.


Adapting the layout to suit your requirements and numbers, we regularly host corporate annual dinners and networking events. We can cater for corporate seminars and presentations to include breakfast and/or lunch.
