Glamorous Macnab Ball returns

The -Dorchester -The -Promenade -High -Res1

THE popular Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) Macnab Ball is back.

To be held in the luxurious ballroom at the Dorchester Hotel, Mayfair on Wednesday 22nd November 2017, the Duchess of Rutland, Emma Manners, will be in attendance as ball chairman.

A champagne reception, with an array of scrumptious canapes, will be followed by a mouthwatering dinner while guests will be entertained by the mind-boggling tricks of Magician Kieron The Mighty.

Henry Howard-Sneyd, of Sotheby’s, will again take to the stage to conduct the auction.

Both the main and silent auction include some fantastic auction lots from luxury items and artwork to shooting days at some of the top estates.

Having won some truly superb auction lots, guests can enjoy the rest of the evening’s entertainment, battling it out at the laser shooting, taking hilarious photos in the photo booth and of course tearing up the dance floor.

Head of London Events at GWCT, Josephine Langer, said: “The Macnab Ball is such a wonderful event, last year’s was amazing and raised over £180,000 for the Trust due to the incredible generosity of our supporters and guests.

“We have a super committee this year who are finding some really fantastic lots, so it’s set to be yet another fabulous evening.”
