In 2017 this included the incredible Team GB Ball, which celebrated the team travelling to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. At the stunning venue of the Victoria and Albert Museum on Wednesday 1st November 2017, guests were welcomed with a cocktail reception and traditional Korean music, before enjoying an evening of Olympic glamour hosted by Ben Shepherd and Amy Williams MBE.
The room was filled with Olympians past and present from both the summer and winter Games. Athletes in attendance included Heather Stanning, Catherine Grainger, Kate Richardson-Walsh and Helen Glover, as well as Adam Peaty, Adam Gemili, Kate Ormerod and Eve Muirhead, who all took part in a panel discussion where they gave unique insights into competing on the biggest world stage.
Michelin-starred chef Joo Won created a bespoke menu for the evening; a stunning three course meal that was inspired by local cuisine and culture from South Korea. An auction of once in a lifetime experiences and prizes was hosted by Charlie Ross, with all proceeds going to supporting Team GB athletes heading out to PyeongChang in February, before the evening reached its finale with entertainment provided by the incomparable Beverley Knight.
