A night to remember

Published on 27 March 2024


Nominations are now open for young ladies looking to make their debut at this year's Civic Ball.


The Civic Ball is one of the longest-running debutante balls in Australia, and will be held on Friday, October 18.


Debutantes will have a little more time than usual to prepare for this year's event, which is being held later in the year due to the 2024 Local Government Elections.


Mayor Tom Kennedy said he hoped to see plenty of young locals take the opportunity to enjoy a glamorous night out.


"This is such a wonderful tradition for Broken Hill, and always makes for a spectacular and elegant event for debutantes and their families and friends,” he said.


"We always get a great mix of entrants - from young ladies who are the first of their family to make a debut, through to participants who are following on a family tradition from their mother or grandmother.


"It really is an occasion for the whole family and can provide memories for generations.


“I’d encourage all young ladies who are interested in making their debut to submit a nomination by Friday, May 24.”


Those wishing to nominate can contact Council’s Community Development Team at council@brokenhill.nsw.gov.au or phone Civic Ball Coordinator Rachel Merton on 8080 3321
