The Benevolent has announced that Charles Metcalfe will host the charity’s annual ball this year.

The event, which takes place on March 14 at The Natural History Museum in London, has been described as “a fantastic evening of delicious wine, gourmet food and top-class entertainment”.

The evening will start at the ‘Salon des Champagnes’ in the dramatic Fossil Way, before moving into the Hintze Hall, where attendees will dine beneath the famous suspended blue whale.

In his role of Master of Ceremonies, Metcalfe will use his charm and experience to help with drinks industry charity to raise funds for several fundraising initiatives on the night.

Invitees on the night will be treated to a three-course meal paired with wines. Members of the drinks industry can support the trade charity by purchasing a table for ten or twelve, priced between £2,750 and £3,300.
