The London Season’s Queen Charlotte's Ball celebrates its 236th anniversary in 2016.

The-Queen-CharlotteOnce the preserve if young aristocrats, who were presented to the monarch by their fathers to mark their entrance into high society, the modern-day version of this event brings together young women from across the globe to raise money for good causes.

The debutantes will be escorted by their fathers and greeted by London Season Patrons H.H. Princess Olga Romanoff and the Duke and Duchess of Somerset.

We're delighted to be benefitting from the silent auction being held at the event. More than £8,000 was raised at last year's event.

We are very grateful to Chairman of the London Season Jennie Hallam-Peel who has decided to support the charity again in 2016.
