Are you passionate about organising parties? Do you want to be a part of creating a glorious anniversary party in a grand environment? If so, join HYY’s anniversary team!

HYY’s 149th anniversary is held on Thursday 23 November 2017 at the Crowne Plaza -hotel. After an elegant dinner party, the evening continues in the same building with a brilliant open after-party that lasts until the early hours. Besides glitter, glamour and general bedazzlement, you can expect the most breath-taking party of the autumn – and you could be a part of making it happen.

We are looking for two song masters and three or four heralds to join the anniversary team. As a song master, you will be key to creating the atmosphere of the party. Additionally, you will get to influence which songs will be sung at the party. If you are good at performing and have experience of acting as a song master, join the team! You can also apply for the position as a pair.

As a herald, you will get to handle diverse tasks both before and during the party. The most important thing is that you are excited and willing to take on various different tasks from decoration to picking up flowers and directing guests at the party.

Song masters and heralds get to be a part of a fantastic anniversary team and enjoy the anniversary party for free – not to mention the wonderful experience of organising a large anniversary party. We will also organise an appreciation night for the anniversary team after the party.

Are you interested? Cool! Send an email to (by 15 September at the latest!)
