Blenheim Ball

at Blenheim Palace

Starlight are delighted to have been welcomed to Blenheim Palace by His Grace The Duke of Marlborough twice (once in 2019 and again in 2022) to host the Blenheim Ball.

It is an inspiring evening commencing with a welcome recpetion in the Great Hall, with sparkling wine kindly donated by Gusbourne. Guests have then made their way into the Long Library for the evening, with entertainment from the night’s host, comedian Rory Bremner and a musical act such as Anne-Marie and Lydia Baylis. A three-course meal accompanied with wine kindly donated by Aristea, was prepared by Lush by Tom Kerridge and everyone was in great spirits for the exciting auction hosted by Sotheby’s UK Chairman Harry Dalmeny. Guests danced the night away at the after party, which in 2019 was in partnership with Annabel’s and in 2022 with Chiltern Firehouse for great music and cocktails to celebrate a fantastic evening.

This event would not be possible without the support of the committee: 

Alasdair Hadden-Paton, Alexandra Spencer-Churchill, Camilla Blandford, Carrie McCardle, George Farquhar, Kate Deighton, and Oliver Hardcastle

The funds raised from this event are vital in protecting play throughout serious illness which we do through our hospital play and distraction services and our programme of events and experiences for seriously ill children.

Blenheim by Starlight was an unforgettable evening, it was an honour and a joy to host. 

Rory Bremner
