Charlton House in Shepton Mallet hosted a black tie ball in aid of The Bannatyne Charitable Trust.

The trust supports charities such as Pilgrim Bandits, Limbs for Lyndon, Well Child, Woman’s Aid, Help for Heros, Mary’s Meals, The British Heart Foundation and many more.

Duncan Bannatyne hosted the event, which had 170 guests.

The night began with a cocktail reception with live entertainment provided by The Famous Company.

This was followed by dinner in a beautiful, spring-themed marquee provided by Abbas marquees.

Guests then enjoyed entertainment from The Bravo Singing Waiters, and The Bath Blues Others.

The band Reconnect, who are signed to Duncan Bannatyne’s record Label, Bannatyne music, entertained the guests while they ate their lavish three-course dinner.

There was a live auction, a silent auction, games and a raffle. The event was a great success, raising funds of over £25,000 for the charity. Guests included Deborah Meaden, Sinitta, Martin Roberts, Duncan’s daughter Abigail Bannatyne and her husband Anthony Elliott.
