Historic venue sees a good cause supported in style

Published: Sunday 23rd of November 2008

London's famous Banqueting House was the scene of a rather spectacular charity event earlier this week, as a cohort of famous faces turned out to support a very good cause.

The venue played host to the Vivienne Westwood and Musici Orchestra Party, which launched the designer's new Chaos line, in support of children's charity the NSPCC.

Among the stars in attendance alongside the designer herself were supermodel Claudia Schiffer, singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and artist Tracey Emin.

But the guest who seemed to attract the most attention from photographers was Nigella Lawson, who wowed onlookers in a stunning red gown.

London's Banqueting House was originally owned by the Archbishop of York and held both good times and bad for King Charles I, who was entertained there at various points in his reign before it became the venue for his execution.

Visitors to the historic property can enjoy free entry with their LondonPass, saving adults £4.50 and children £2.25.
