Friends Dinner

The Friends Dinner is one of our flagship fundraising events, attended by the Trust's closest friends and celebrity supporters.

Stephen Fry

Hosted by the Friends President, Stephen Fry, the Friends Dinners have raised more than £7.2 million towards our vital work over the years.

The Friends Dinner is an opportunity for our existing Friends and Associate Friends to reaffirm their support, as well a chance for us to welcome new supporters to the Friends family.

Find out who came along to the Friends Dinner 2017.

The event is held in early summer every year at a prestigious London venue. Past venues have included The Roof Gardens in Kensington, London Hilton on Park Lane, Royal Hospital Chelsea, Grosvenor House, One Marylebone, the Tower of London and the Royal Courts of Justice.

On the night guests are greeted by Stephen Fry and treated to a reception, followed by a three-course meal. During the evening there is a speech and appeal by Stephen Fry where guests are invited to make a personal pledge of support to Terrence Higgins Trust. The evening ends with surprise live entertainment. Past performers have included Boy George, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Andy Bell, Heather Small and Elaine Paige.

The 2016 Friends Dinner was held at Banqueting House on 16 June and included a fantastic performance from the brilliant Melanie C. The night raised over £522,000 in support of people living with HIV. Thank you to all of our guests who reaffirmed their support or joined the Friends family for the first time.
