The event

The Collars & Coats Gala Ball is a spectacular evening like no other.

Surrounded by high profile guests and celebrity supporters, enjoy an evening of exquisite fine dining; phenomenal entertainment and the chance to win some incredible ‘money can’t buy’ auction prizes. What’s more, it’s all kicked off with a welcome like no other from the legendary doggie Guard of Honour, formed by 40 of Battersea’s canine residents proudly taking their place on the red carpet.

The star-studded fundraising ball always attracts a stellar guest list of renowned Battersea friends and supporters including the charity’s Ambassadors Paul O’Grady MBE and Dame Jacqueline Wilson DBE. Last year saw an electrifying evening of entertainment with performances from the show-stopping burlesque troupe Crazy Rouge, internationally renowned classical artist Camilla Kerslake and the undisputed music legend that is Bryan Ferry.

This year we welcomed R’n’B divas that really brought the bow wow factor to Battersea. Performing their knockout hits Lost In Music, He’s The Greatest Dancer, and We Are Family as well as unveiling brand new tracks from their latest album, Sister Sledge led a dazzling line up of entertainment at Battersea Evolution on 3 November.

For another amazing night of live music, dancing and high-octane entertainment, information on our 2017 event will be released here so watch out for further details. We hope you can join us.
