We held our 28th year of Opera at Syon on Wednesday 12th June and Thursday 13th June. Over two nights, guests enjoyed a stunning performance by Diva Opera of L’italiana in Algeri and Madama Butterfly and a delicious dinner in the beautiful setting of the Great Conservatory at Syon Park.
We had some fantastic items up for auction including a week’s holiday in San Francisco, tickets to see The Magic Flute at The Royal Opera House and exclusive jewellery designed by Nada Le Cavelier. The Opera at Syon evenings have raised an incredible total of over £1.4 million for Children with Cancer UK to date.
We were grateful to be joined at the event by two researchers funded by Children with Cancer UK, Dr Srdan Rogosic and Professor Sibylle Mittnacht. They spoke about their important research into safer and more effective childhood cancer treatments.
We really appreciate the fantastic support of all who attended Opera at Syon and helped to make it so special.
