The first Heritage Week Ball was held in Sydney Town Hall in 1981 with support from the National Trust and Sydney City Council. It was run as a second Colonial Subscription Ball, held in March rather than August to coincide with Heritage Week.
The following year we held a concert instead, with the second Ball held in 1983, separate to the Colonial Subscription Ball. Balls were initially held in Sydney Town Hall during Heritage Week with support from the National Trust and sponsorship from Caltex.
When sponsorship became unviable, the ball moved to other venues which were more affordable. We did look at Sydney Town Hall later and found the pricing (especially catering) to be even more out of our reach.  http://www.bushmusic.org.au/ball_heritage_history.shtml


The Heritage Ensemble was initiated in 1983 to perform for the inaugural Heritage Ball held in the Sydney Town Hall in 1983. This event was held by the Bush Music Club, in conjunction with the National Trust and the Royal Historical Society of NSW, with sponsorship provided by Caltex Australia. Musicians from a number of Sydney based bush bands were invited to perform with David Johnson as the Musical Director. https://www.davidjohnson.id.au/1_music/heritage/heritage.htm
