Masked Ball: Over 100 bank cards, 29 wallets and 23 IDs lost

Written by Ivan Edwards |



The Masked Ball lost property office has released details of all the items found in the aftermath of last Saturday’s event, revealing that partygoers lost:


  • 23 passports and IDs
  • 29 wallets and purses
  • 13 phones
  • 4 sets of keys
  • Over a hundred bank cards.

The Masked Ball Lost Property Facebook page released details of the haul yesterday, adding: “Christ alive you lost a lot!”

The 2018 Halloween Masked Ball was held on Saturday 27th October in the 27-acre Flambards Theme Park in Helston. It is one of two annual ‘Masked Ball’ events, with the other in Spring, held every year since 2009. Organisers Arc Live describe the 12-hour event as “one of the largest Halloween parties in Europe”. This year’s headliners included Danny Byrd, Spy and London Elektricity, and the event was popular with students and locals alike.

But so many bank cards were lost that Arc Live, organisers of the Masked Ball, are advising those who lost them to cancel and replace them, rather than attempt to collect them from lost property.

However, any other items can be collected by appointment from the Arc Live offices in Porthleven.

Details on when and how to collect lost property can be found on the Masked Ball Lost Property Facebook page.
