This is the biggest event in the charity’s calendar - last year West End Kids helped the charity raise a staggering £482,000.

“Grosvenor House was designed specifically for the American market and was opened in 1929,” said Martin Williams, founder and artistic director, West End Kids. “So for this year’s Ball we have decided to take the audience back to the hotel’s roots with a routine of song and dance from Broadway musicals all set in the 1930s. Guests will be treated to the West End Kids performing hits from 42nd Street, Anything Goes, and Mack & Mabel.”

“We’re all really excited about Saturday’s performance,” said Esme Rothero, 15 from Brockley. “The Great Room is the perfect setting for our 1930s routine. Last year our performance at the CHILDREN with CANCER Ball was really well received, but I think they’re all in for a real treat this year.”

West End Kids will be holding national auditions for its 2014 troupe in Central London on Saturday, 4th January, 2014. To register, please visit or call 0208 123 2025.
