St Paul's Church in Hammersmith transformed into a cabaret haven for a fundraising "Spectacular Spectacular"
12 Nov 2012 | Paul Wells
On Friday night the beautiful St. Paul's Church in Hammersmith was glammed up for a Moulin Rouge-style fundraising event for Spear Course. After the cocktail reception, guests sat at round tables under a sky of hundreds of fairy lights.
The French theme was honoured by the extraordinary three-course dinner of Galette De Trois Poissons Fumés, followed by Filet De Boeuf Béarnaise, Pommes Dauphinoise and Horicots Verts, finishing with Fondant Au Chocolat Glace A La Vanille.
The first-class entertainment was a Strictly Come Dancing special by professionals Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag, then Patron of the charity, Miranda Hart partnered up with David Walliams for their own private dance (David tweeted a picture of the stars together) warranting a standing ovation from the crowd.
Movies were projected onto the original church wall to the delight of guests standing on the gallery during the cocktail reception.

The Strictly Come Dancing spectacle in the church brimming full of beautiful guests sitting under a sky of fairy lights was the beginning of a truly unique evening that we were very proud to be involved with. We hope Spear managed to raise a lot of money for their fantastic cause; every penny is deserved.
