The Grand Prix Ball is delighted to announce the entertainment at the Hurlingham Club on Wednesday 7 July as the country gears up for what is set to be a thrilling 2010 British Grand Prix. There is something for everyone in the evening’s packed star‐studded line‐up, with sets from Sugababes, Seb Fontaine, Eddie Jordan and The Robbers, Darius Campbell and Ben Montague.
Headlining the evening is Britain’s top girl group, Sugababes, with the trio of Heidi Range, Jade Ewen and Amelle Berrabah set to perform some of the greatest hits from the band’s 12‐year repertoire. Sugababes have been named the most successful female act of the 21st century by the Guinness Book of World Records as they boast six UK number one singles and eighteen top‐ten hits to their name.
For the more musical of fans, Darius Campbell, the winner of ITV’s ‘Popstar to Operastar’, will be dropping in to perform a variety of swing songs with his sultry Scottish baritone. Darius also recently performed in the world famous opera Carmen at The O2 Arena with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, playing the illustrious role of Escamillo. The last few years have seen him have hit singles and platinum albums, tour the world with Shakhira and Alanis Morissette, as well as several lead roles in the West End and on TV.
To keep the dancefloor kicking until the small hours, there will be a set by internationally celebrated DJ Seb Fontaine, courtesy of F1 Rocks™, which will be making its much‐awaited comeback later this year. Seb, who has been at the top of the house and dance music scene for two decades, has enjoyed a huge career, including a famous residency at top UK club Cream and his own show on BBC Radio 1.

From the established to the up‐and‐coming, The Grand Prix Ball will also see a performance by celebrated singer/songwriter Ben Montague. Ben’s single ‘Haunted’ recently took the coveted record of the week slot on BBC Radio 2 and he is fresh from a headline performance at the Isle of Wight festival. Ben will play tracks from his debut album ‘Overcome’.
As previously confirmed, BBC Formula 1 pundit and former team owner Eddie Jordan will also be taking to the stage with his acclaimed pop/rock covers band, The Robbers.
