Join The Cheltenham Trust for a special Gin and Cabaret gala night spectacular and help to make a difference to the lives of children with cancer, and to support them and their families during difficult times.

The trust has launched its first collaborative charity event, the Gin and Cabaret gala night in support of the Emily’s Gift charity appeal.

The gala night is on Thursday 8 February 2024 at Cheltenham Town Hall, and is supported by Gloucester Brewery and Fox’s Kiln Distillery, and aims to generate funding to help Emily’s Gift reach its £500,000 fundraising target.

The event is an opportunity to dress to impress and enjoy an experience that will appeal to the senses, a night of glitz and glamour of the highest calibre, cabaret, exquisite dining and an exclusive after party, while raising funds for an inspirational and invaluable charity.

Laurie Bell, chief executive of The Cheltenham Trust, said: “The charity collaboration is an extension of the trust’s aim to reinvest in the local community and by doing so make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of local residents and visitors to the town. The Gin and Cabaret Gala is the first charity collaboration and the trust is pleased and proud to support Emily’s Gift for its first event.”

Emily’s Gift appeal was launched in March 2023 by Julie Kent MBE under the umbrella of the Pied Piper Charity. The appeal comes to an end in March 2024.

The appeal aims to raise money to fund a psychologist on the Emily Kent paediatric oncology unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for 10 years, to provide invaluable emotional support to children having cancer treatment, and their families.

Through its commercial activities the trust raises funding to provide free community events and activities, enabling thousands of local residents and visitors to the town to enjoy exclusive access to live music, entertainment, art and culture.

Tickets for the charity gala night are now on sale with both classic tickets and VIP tickets, which include an exclusive after party, now available to purchase. Find out more and book your ticket to support this special fund raising event at
