The Macmillan Winter Gala

Join us

Join us on Wednesday 29 November for Macmillan Cancer Support's Winter Gala!

Our Macmillan Winter Gala online auction is now live. We have dozens of amazing and exclusive prizes to be won from beautiful holiday destinations to designer fashion items and signed memorabilia. Happy bidding!

Expect to find all the best bits from the Annual Ball and the Celebrity Christmas Stocking Auction at our brand-new fundraiser. With an incredible host, amazing entertainment and exquisite fine dining lined up, the Winter Gala is not to be missed. This new event will be bigger and better than ever before and we would love to see you there.

This year, with your support, we aim to raise enough money to fund at least seven Macmillan nurses to help improve the lives of people living with cancer.

Our first Winter Gala will be held in one of London's most famous and iconic landmarks, The Guildhall. This beautiful venue has previously been used for many prestigious events from visiting heads of state, to hosting Team GB's 2012 Olympians and most recently Her Majesty The Queen's 90th birthday celebrations.

To help guide us through the event, the amazing comedian and TV presenter Jo Brand will be our host for the evening. Jo will be joined by some amazing artists performing throughout the evening. The fabulous Heather Small will be joining us to perform classic hit songs from the sensational 90s dance group M people. We will also have the talented Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter Scott Mills joining us to play the night out with one of his famous DJ sets, guaranteed to get everyone dancing.

'I just wanted to pass on my congratulations to you & the rest of your team for such a marvelous event. Our staff had a fantastic time.

Annual Ball Patron.

'Please pass on our congratulation and thanks to the team and committee we all had a terrific night. The bands were tremendous; we danced ourselves into a heap!!' Annual Ball Patron.
