On Wednesday, June 26, London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSHCC) and Formula One Management will host an unforgettable night to celebrate the official launch of the 2013 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix.

With the kind permission of Bernie Ecclestone, the F1 community and celebrities will come together for the party of the season in aid of GOSHCC. The event, which features Pirelli as a supporting partner, will take place at Old Billingsgate, in the heart of the City of London. This will be the ninth year that the charity has hosted the only official F1 Party in the UK.

The charity’s Patrons, Tess Daly and Vernon Kay, will be hosting the evening which will also feature live music from Brit award-winning James Morrison and a DJ set from Smooth Radio host Emma B.

A night to remember

As well as exclusive music performances, guests will enjoy delicious cocktails and food. A host of luxury items and experiences will be sold throughout the night as part of the exciting auctions and raffle, enabling us to raise vital funds towards the work of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

For a great cause

Since 2005, the charity’s F1 relationship has enabled it to raise over £3 million towards Great Ormond Street Hospital. Following on from last year, the F1 Party will continue fundraising for a new state-of-the-art Surgery Centre, where some of the world’s most renowned paediatric surgeons will be operating on patients as young as a few hours through to 18 years old. The aim of the new Surgery Centre is to bring all surgical patients together in a new ward with modern and comfortable facilities, enabling the hospital’s world-class clinicians to provide the very highest standard of care.
