As well as hearing from Davina the afternoon will be filled with fun and games along with incredible prizes to be won and money-can’t-buy items in our Live Auction hosted by the charismatic Edward Rising. All raising money for children’s charity Action Medical Research.

Returning for 2023 is former Butlins Redcoat and winner of the Funny Women Award, Suzy Bennett. She made us laugh so much we just had to have her back!

Opening this year's event will be the very talented Jax Hall with her ‘Inspired by Adele show’, performing some of the greatest hits from Adele's chart storming albums  and then we'll be 'Dancing Queens' with one of the UK's premier Abba Tribute Band - ABBA's ANGELS!

To finish off we’ll have a DJ for the after-party and every guest goes home with an exclusive gift bag.

Surprisingly medical research to help children is poorly funded in the UK. Action Medical Research has a critical job to do in helping fill this gap.

Since we began in 1952 we have been funding medical breakthroughs like the first polio vaccines in the UK, ultrasound in pregnancy and the rubella vaccine – helping to save thousands of children’s lives and change many more.
