The Bangkok St Andrew’s Society Annual Ball, our biggest event of the year, takes place on a Saturday in November. A celebration of our patron saint, St Andrew, at a top-class hotel in Bangkok, it offers delicious food, free-flow drinks, Scottish entertainment and ceilidh dancing.

Scottish fare is featured in the five-course menu, a whole course being dedicated to the haggis. Wine, beer and whisky are included in the cost of a ticket. We are lucky to have generous sponsors who provide drinks at the Drinks Reception and the Ball.

The British Club Bangkok Pipe Band have played at our balls since it was formed in 2008. They delight us with a melody of Scottish tunes. The Gordon School of Dancing Montrose have wowed us at balls since 2014 with dynamic, modern routines of Highland dancing. Robina Addison, leader and choreographer, brings a different group of girls to perform for us each year and ensures they enjoy new experiences and Thai culture during their visit.

Well-known bands from Scotland are flown over to play and call the dances. The Graham Geddes band provided traditional Scottish Country Dance music for 19 years at our balls. Then came Bahookie with their fantastic rock ceilidh for several years. In 2023 Whisky Kiss made their debut in Bangkok with a mix of modern and traditional.

This ball is unique in Bangkok and not to be missed!
