Tickets are on sale for a black-tie ball organised to raise money for a children's hospice.
Money raised at the event will support Richard House Children's Hospice in Beckton, in east London.
It helps children with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses and their families.
The hospice hopes the flagship event will raise £100,000.
It takes place on November 6 at the Waldorf Hilton, in Aldwych, London, starting at 6.45pm with a champagne reception followed by a three-course meal. There will be a silent and live auction.
The Pure Orange Band will be providing entertainment and auctioneer Charlie Ross, from TV's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is and Antiques Road Trip, will host the auction.
Manjeet Boparai, events manager at Richard House, said: "The annual ball promises to be a glamorous evening, full of fun, mouth-watering food and dancing, while raising money for Richard House Children's Hospice.
"Previous annual balls have been a sell-out, with guests dancing the night away and carriages arriving at half-past midnight."
Tickets cost £150 and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information call Manjeet on 020 7540 0204 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
