A Private Sitting in Mayfair

The Secret Winter Gala returned in style, as guests stepped into the pages of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Save the Children’s annual star-studded event raised over £1 million, including match funding from the UK government, to save and transform the lives of children across the world.

Guests including HRH The Princess Royal, Samantha Cameron, Helena Bonham Carter, Dominic West, Poppy Delevingne, Lenny Henry and Erin O’Connor, enjoyed a magical evening of fine dining, theatrical entertainment and fundraising at London’s historic Guildhall.
