Spring is (nearly) here, and we’re looking forward to our annual Spring Gala returning to The Dorchester, Park Lane on Monday 6 March.

This glamorous evening of dinner and special performances from our dancers is English National Ballet’s biggest fundraising event of the year where individuals can support the Company by bidding on unique prizes in our live and silent auctions, which ultimately helps us continue our aim to give more people access to ballet.

This year’s gala is themed around ‘ballet firsts’. The evening starts off with a Laurent Perrier champagne reception, followed by a delicious three course meal, and sees our dancers perform new work choreographed by First Artist Van Le Ngoc.

Tickets for the evening have now sold out, but there is still a chance to support our work and snap up some of the exclusive prizes on offer with our pre-event silent auction. Auction prizes include tickets to the Spring Summer 2018 presentation from Roksanda Ilincic at London Fashion Week, Omorovicza’s Blue Diamond Collection of skincare products, and a print inspired by Akram Khan’s Giselle by English painter and printmaker Eileen Cooper.

Prizes with an English National Ballet focus include the opportunity to watch Nutcracker from the wings of the London Coliseum (which includes a three course dinner with wine at 45 Jermyn St. for two guests), and tickets to opening night of Akram Khan’s Giselle when it returns to London this September.
