Last year’s event

On All Hallows’ Eve, the wonderfully eccentric Aynhoe Park awoke. The ancient timbers creaked and groaned. The statues stirred from their slumber. The creatures and curiosities shivered into life and ghosts whispered their secrets…

The 2017 event saw stars and supporters join us for a night of surprise, spectacle and all kinds of spirits. Guests were entertained by the incredible immersive theatre from Look Left Look Right, before hearing from The London Essentials, Tiggi Hawke and Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Guests were then encouraged to bid big in the money-can’t-buy auction, which included lots such as a private island stay in the Maldives, a signed Ed Sheeran guitar and the Ultimate Pink Floyd Experience.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the guests on the night, the event raised over £300,000 to ensure children in emergencies have access to life-saving food, water and medical care, as well as longer-term support to help them and their families rebuild their lives.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor treated guests to a dazzling performance at the 2017 Halloween Ball.
