The third Cirque du St John's raised over £75,000 for St John's Hospice.
Over 200 Lords, Ladies, loyal Hospice donors and celebrities attended the event, which was held off-site for the first time, at the world famous Café de Paris in London's West End.
Guests were welcomed with a champagne reception and a roaming magician.
They then enjoyed a fabulous 3-course dinner with wine and more champagne, whilst being entertained by a variety of sensational circus acts and bidding on both Live and Silent Auctions.
Live Auction prizes included tickets to the Rugby World Cup, a Private Jet to Paris, bouquets of flowers every week for a year, and the star auction prize, a seven night stay in exclusive Jumby Bay, which raised £14,000 alone.
The guests were also beguiled by a variety of stage performers featuring fire-eaters, acrobatic hula hoop displays, juggler and singing sensation Delores Delight.
All funds raised from Cirque du St John's help the Hospice to provide free care for over 3,000 patients and their families every year.
