Charity Dinner

Battersea Collars & Coats Ball

An annual glamorous fundraising ball for 700 guests.

The Event

A 24 hour residency, welcoming 700 guests for dinner. Each year, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home hold a glamorous fundraising gala ball to increase awareness of the important work the home does, with a host of celebrities taking to the red carpet to show their support. This was the ninth year in a row that Evolution London and Hawthorn partnered for the ball.

The Highlights

  • Four 16ft by 9ft projection screens documenting the charity's success stories.
  • Battersea’s legendary Guard of Honour - a red carpet lined with the home’s dogs and their handlers.
  • Royal blue velvet drapes and fitted black and gold lurex drapes enhanced the venue.
  • A unique 24ft stage extension was constructed to allow performance space for the dogs.
  • The venue was transformed into a literary heaven with floral displays to suit the concept of 'A Night of New Beginnings'.
  • A delicious three course meal by Smart Hospitality, including Blackened Salmon Fillet and Feather Blade of Beef.
  • Incredible performances from Mica Paris and UB40.

We have had so much positive feedback and it has been hailed as the best Collars & Coats in terms of content, organisation and overall experience.
