Welcome to our latest blog! We hope you’re all okay!

Well, we’ve got something totally ‘darb’ to announce … in fact, we’re going to be talking about a fantastic ‘sockdollager … if you know your onions’ … confused Don’t be!

The weird and wonderful phrases in the above sentence are words that were used in 1920’s America (and some in the UK, too).

And the 1920’s will be the theme for our special, invite-only, red carpet event on Friday 19th July at The Royal Hotel, Scarborough.

‘Darb’ means something amazing; a ‘sockdollager’ is a special event and ‘know your onions’ doesn’t mean a stint in the kitchen … it means ‘to know what’s going on’!

We’ve had this idea – always dangerous with our team, particularly if too much coffee’s been consumed – and that idea was to have an awards night based around a Roaring Twenties theme.

The event will include a three-course dinner, proper invitations, brilliant table settings and the awards ceremony. The awards will have a fun element as well as recognising the hard work that goes on here at Futureworks NY HQ.

How did we come up with the 1920’s theme, we hear you ask?

We did some brainstorming and created lots of mood boards, which included many different ideas … the Roaring Twenties was the overall favourite.

You know here at Futureworks NY we’ve got a fantastic crew … ages range from 14 to 58, lots of different people with all sorts of stories to tell. All our learners aspire to make changes and improve their life journeys.

So our Roaring Twenties event will be a chance for some serious motivation, celebration and achievement.

As we LOVE cake – actually any food is great by us! – sorting out the delicious menu for the evening is our first priority, followed by ordering the trophies for ‘the big night’, and designing the invites.

And this is just the start …

We’re looking forward to putting the table settings together, getting the guest list ready and of course, one of the best parts of the event is to get all glammed up!

Our Co ...

Thanks to Our Co… on Northway, the prom dresses are sorted.

We’re also going to be looking at getting some fantastic prizes for the evening … watch this space!

The ladies are going to have their hair and make-up done and look gorgeous on the night.  The guys can dig out their dinner suits, dickie bows and be gallant gentlemen for the event.

We’ll keep you posted on this blog as this exciting project takes shape. Hopefully by the 19th July everything will be ‘jake’ (alright) on the night!
