The MacmillanWinter Gala


The Macmillan Winter Gala

Join us

A massive thank you to everyone who joined us and donated to this year’s Winter Gala. We are delighted to announce that so far with your support we have raised over an amazing £340,000 which is enough to fund 6 Macmillan Nurses.

The night would not have been the great success it was without the support of the amazing Jo Brand who was our host for the evening. Guiding everyone through the evening, she was supported by some amazing artists including the Vox Vixens who got the show started. M Peoples Heather Small then followed performing some of her biggest hits, ensuring everyone got to the dancefloor. To tie things up, BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills played the night out, putting together an amazing DJ set.

Fine wine and fantastic food accompanied our amazing performers, adding that touch of sparkle to create a memorable evening and really kickstarting the Christmas countdown.

We would like to give a special thanks to Swarovski for their outstanding support and providing beautiful products to make this event an even more glamourous occasion.

Remember to save the date for next year’s Macmillan Winter Gala when we will be returning on Wednesday 28 November. Make sure to reserve your tables early by emailing
