Stephen Bayliss is back, with an Audience with James T Blakeman!

The NFFF are delighted to announce James T Blakeman as your entertainment sponsor at this year's President's Banquet & Masquerade Ball, which takes place on Sunday 24th September 2017 at the Chesford Grange on the outskirts of Kenilworth, Warwick.

Our President’s Banquet & Ball is industry renowned for hosting a wonderful night of entertainment and this years will be no exception.

We are delighted to announce our main act for the evening is the great Stephen Bayliss

Stephen entertained guests at the NFFF President's Banquet & Ball in 2013 for our centenary celebrations and in front of a packed house he didn't disappoint.

Stephen’s stage presence is magical, commanding the mood and audience to participate and have the time of their lives. He has a unique ability to unite all generations on the dance floor.
His repertoire ranges from his own original tracks to Motown, R&B, Country, Pop, Soul, Modern Popular Music and more.

In short, Stephen can bring visions of an era gone-by, stand strong as a solo original artist or deliver accomplished covers making them truly his own. This versatility allows him to tailor a performance exactly to the audience, ensuring everyone goes home with a memory to cherish.

Stephen has continued to grow and has become one of the UK’s most successful live performers, selling out every concert he plays.

A night to remember!

Further live entertainment will take place on the night but as part of the mystery to the masquerade we will save the surprise until the night. 


Tickets are on sale now and are priced at the superb value of £75 or £700 for a table of 10.

The price includes everything you’d expect at the NFFF’s event of the year: drinks reception, a mouth-watering four-course meal, evening long entertainment and dancing into the early hours. It is a great opportunity to enjoy the company of fellow fish friers and industry colleagues.

Tickets are available now through NFFF Head Office in Meanwood, Leeds. Please telephone 0113 230 7044 or email
