There’s “not even room for Cinderella”

The star-studded London Press Club Ball has sold out in record time.

All tables have been snapped up for the media event of the year at the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand on Thursday October 9.

Ball co-chairmen, London Press Club directors, Ray Massey and Robert Jobson said: ’There has been unprecedented demand for tickets and tables this year. There’s not even room for Cinderella. We have set up a waiting list. But the message for next year must be: book early to avoid disappointment.’

HRH The Countess of Wessex is to be guest of honour at the 10th Anniversary London Press Club Ball which is raising funds for the Journalists’ Charity in its 150th year.

The Countess already has a long association with the Journalists’ Charity, having opened its new care home, Pickering House in Dorking, in 2007.

The Journalists’ Charity is the leading charity for all journalists in need. It was created 150 years ago by a group of journalists who met in a pub near Fleet Street and its founding members included Charles Dickens. It was granted its Royal Charter in 1890 and is still run by journalists for journalists.
