What to book: International Women’s Day Tea at The Arts Club
To celebrate International Women’s Day, the breast-cancer charity Future Dreams is hosting a Ladies’ Afternoon Tea at The Arts Club. The event, which will include live entertainment as well as sandwiches, cakes and unlimited champagne, is supported by the Estée Lauder Companies UK & Ireland’s Breast Cancer Campaign. Among the inspiring speakers on the day will be Town & Country’s own editor-in-chief Justine Picardie.
Also performing on the day will be the singer-songwriter Camilla Kerslake, a long-time supporter of breast-cancer charities.
Future Dreams, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, was founded by the mother and daughter Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie, both of whom were diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age. Shortly after diagnosis, the pair formed the charity, hoping to raise money for support, awareness and research into the disease.

To date, the charity has raised £4.5 million. This year, Future Dreams hopes to make enough money to prevent the closure of the breast-cancer support centre Breast Cancer Haven, which is in danger of losing its Fulham site when the lease expires in 2019. It is hoped that the charity will hit its target of £5 million, enough to establish a bigger centre in the heart of the capital, and one that will serve the needs of the many thousands of women affected by breast cancer each year. The charity also funds two outreach programmes based out of the Whittington Hospital and University College Hospital London, and hopes to open a further two by the end of the year.
Tickets to the Ladies’ Afternoon Tea at Leo’s The Arts Club on Thursday 8 March 2018 are limited and cost £125. To enquire, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
