The Macmillan Annual Ball

Join us

On Wednesday 23 November, we invite you to take a journey into the unknown at the iconic Savoy Hotel, hosted by Jon Culshaw. Navigate your way to the beautiful Champagne reception and on to the infamous Lancaster Ballroom where exquisite fine dining and enthralling live entertainment awaits you.

There will be plenty of opportunities to support Macmillan via the exclusive Auctions during the evening. Funds raised from the Live Auction will directly support the pioneering work of Macmillan Cancer Support and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHT), with the delivery of an innovative new programme, “Supporting you through your cancer care”. This programme will ensure patients get the expert support they need throughout their cancer journey, and staff feel empowered to deliver the highest standards of care.
