Known to locals as simply B&S balls, the events are held regularly in rural towns, run by local volunteers, the balls help raise funds for the community. Historically the B&S balls were centred on country people trying to find a partner, but now the focus has shifted to partying, heavy drinking and meeting up with new and old friends, some of who live many hours away.
