Gala dinner and charity auction at Australia House

Get involved in a gala dinner and auction that will raise money for the Australian Red Cross, which is still helping the people of Australia in the wake of the natural disasters that shook the continent earlier this year.

Award-winning chefs Shane Osborn (Pied à Terre), Brett Graham (The Ledbury) and Bruno Loubet (Bistro Bruno Loubet) have all volunteered their time – and their staff – to create one dish for the three-course banquet.

Following the meal, each chef will be auctioned off, with the highest bidder receiving a meal cooked by the chef in their own home. Other lots will also be available.

Diners can expect entertainment from some of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing stars, as well as Supertramp saxophonist John Helliwell, who will perform with his other group Crème Anglaise.

The event takes place on 3 May. Tickets are £150 each or £1,350 for a table of 10.
