GroceryAid Comic Relief
Are you ready for The Big Bash

Following the huge success of the 2019 Sainsbury’s Ball and the unforeseen interruption to 2020, we’ve decided to refresh and re-launch with a different style of event for 2021.

We are pleased to introduce the Sainsbury’s Big Bash in support of partnership charities GroceryAid and Comic Relief.

We're returning to Battersea Evolution and as well as delicious food designed by Sainsbury's chefs and refreshing tailor-made cocktails, the party will be packed with fundraising opportunities, interactive and exciting entertainment.

This really is a celebration of Sainsbury’s and whilst we’d love you to join us we understand that due to the events of 2020 and ongoing circumstances not everyone will be able to attend the event.

The date for your diaries is Wednesday 1st December 2021 and please see below for details of available packages.
