Jackets and ties are required for gentlemen. No blue jeans, t shirts, trainers/sneakers or other casual attire will be permitted - no exceptions.

Please note, whilst all celebrities listed in this press release have agreed to attend the event, their appearance can be subject to last minute change and is not guaranteed.
