Berkeley Square Ball returns to London


Visitors to the capital staying in luxury London hotels may be interested in attending the Berkeley Square Ball.

The exclusive event costs £600 per person or £5,500 for a table of ten, and is a well-known fixture in the city’s cultural calendar.

Gentlemen in suits and ladies in cocktail dresses flock to Portman Square, ideally located for guests in central London hotels, where they can enjoy a nostalgic, glamorous evening surrounded by celebrities all in aid of the Prince’s Trust.

“The Ball is synonymous with combining the highest quality culinary experience with stellar entertainment,” explained the organisers.

Last year, Britain’s leading Italian chef Giorgio Locatelli brought his Michelin-starred expertise to create the menu and designer Shaun Clarkson was appointed to create the look and feel of the event.

Furthermore, the “refreshing informality” of the event attracts a mixture of people, including “a young, hip and fashionable social set”, from across the globe.

The event also attracts top celebrities to perform, such as the late Amy Winehouse and James Brown.

“As well as world famous entertainers, the Ball always attracts an incredible calibre of celebrity guests,” the group added.

“Previous years attendees have included Rod Stewart, Penny Lancaster, Mischa Barton, Cat Deeley and Damian Lewis.”

The event has received rave reviews from periodicals, top entertainers, philanthropists and journalists alike.

Prince’s Trust ambassador Rod Stewart commented: “It was the first time Penny and I had attended the Ball and we had a great time.”
