Book the date in your diary – and book early

This year’s London Press Club Ball is taking place in the stunning surroundings of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum – the ‘V&A’
Last year’s Ball – attended by HRH The Countess of Wessex and London Mayor Boris Johnson – sold out in record time and raised a record sum for the Journalists’ Charity. We expect similar superlatives in 2015. Book early to avoid disappointment. It’s the networking event you won’t want to miss and the highlight of the national media’s social calendar .
The Ball is a glittering event attended by editors, proprietors, senior journalists, top executives, programme-makers, star columnists, and TV and radio broadcasters. It is backed by major newspaper and media groups as well as generous sponsors.
Ticket/table prices include a champagne reception, a fabulous three-course meal with wine plus entertainment and dancing. A celebrity auction will help raise funds for the Journalists’ Charity.
