The History of the Grand Prix Ball

This year will be the 8th Annual Grand Prix Ball and its back and bigger than ever before! On Wednesday 4th July 2018 (subject to FIA calendar confirmation), the Hurlingham Club will become the home of Formula 1 ahead of the infamous British Grand Prix.

Expect the glamorous black tie affair to kick off with a bang! From your first step on to the red carpet alongside the stars of Formula 1, hear the echoes of their engines as our signature F1 demonstration lights up the tarmac to kick off the evening’s proceedings.

You will then be wined, dined and entertained in stunning surroundings right on the banks of the River Thames. Mix with our star-studded celebrity guest list during the champagne reception and three course dinner, then mingle amongst the stunning display of iconic Formula 1 cars whilst being entertained with live performances by award winning UK artists and DJs as we prepare for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Live Entertainment and DJs

After dinner the party continues until the early hours of Thursday morning with Live entertainment from Eddie Jordan’s band ‘Eddie and the Robbers’ and headline DJ performances. In previous years Eddie has been supported by leading acts such as The Feeling, Tony Hadley & Spandau Ballet, Sophie Ellis Bextor, the Sugababes, Gipsey Kings, and a DJ sets from Seb Fontaine.

Gourmet 3 Course Dinner

Following your champagne reception, prepare for a gourmet 3 course sit down dinner with complimentary wine throughout the evening.

Legends Tables

Choosing the ‘Legends Table’ option includes the privilege of having a Formula 1 legend sit at your table over dinner and the opportunity for 2 of your guests to meet the stars of the evening. Legends from past years have included Formula 1 world champions Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell.

Wings for Life

We are proud to announce a long-term partnership with the Wings for Life. A share of the proceeds will be donated to the charity Wings for Life which is a not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation. Wings for Life’s mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Wings for Life fund world-class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at healing the injured spinal cord.

Charity Auction

After dinner, a thrilling live auction in support of Wings for Life gives you the opportunity to bid on special motor sport-related lots. In previous years we’ve auctioned off lots like guided tours of the constructor’s facilities and paddock passes with hospitality at the British Grand Prix. A silent auction will run concurrently through the evening.

Live F1 Demonstration and Displays

From the moment you arrive, prepare to be immersed in all aspects of motor sport. We start with a Live Formula 1 Demonstration on the red carpet and continue with a stunning concourse of Formula 1 cars. Where else can you sip champagne to the sounds of a live Formula 1 car?

Red Carpet Arrival

Glamour and Formula 1 go hand in hand. Arrive and walk the Red Carpet alongside celebrities and motor sports legends before you head on to the Champagne Reception.

“It Rocks! Bringing F1 and Music and Fun together!”
