The evening started with a champagne reception followed by a three course meal, casino, magician, MC Clark Gable and auction by LBC radio DJ David Prever. Fabulous Auction items donated included an Omega James Bond watch, Rod Stewarts Shirt, Joss Stone's skateboard, a picture by HRH Duchess of York, Garrard Jade Jagger ring, LeBeers diamond necklace, Lulu Guiness Handbag and FoliFoli jewellery set. CocaCola kindly provided table water and Ferraro donated new Giotto chocolates that were very popular with the guests.  


There was a rush onto the dance floor when Martin Fry (ABC) took to the stage, who was followed  by the FABBA girls (who annouced that  Sweden had come second from bottom in the Eurovision song contest). Many encores were demanded from Tony Hadley, with the audience singing along with every chorus.
