A sparkling occasion

Published: Monday, 15th December 2014

On a cold December night, an audience of eighty enjoyed a wonderful evening of music and conversation at the recent Gala Dinner and Concert at Ditchley Park.  We are indebted to Dame Anne Murray and Robin Leggate, with accompaniment from Tim Ardern, for a superb performance which made full use of the beautiful acoustics of the Great Hall.

 The concert was preceded by a Champagne reception, generously sponsored by Champagne Pol Roger and was followed by dinner prepared by our new Head Chef, Darren Salmon.  After dinner there was an opportunity to enjoy more drinks by the roaring open fire in the Great Hall accompanied by carols around the grand piano, played by Lady Becket Smith.
We will be holding further fundraising events in the future. To receive details, please get in touch with Katie Williams by sending an email to: katie@ditchley.co.uk to register on our fundraising mailing list.
