Friends and guests of the Holfords of Westonbirt Trust met for a black tie dinner at Westonbirt House for a fundraising event which aimed to raise £250,000 to restore the Reading Room.

Guests enjoyed drinks in the Library upon arrival, and music played by students filled the air. A magician was on hand to wow guests with his card tricks and spoon-bending routines, before guests went through to dinner in the Great Hall. Nick Bonham auctioned fabulous prizes while Loyd Grossman gave a fascinating talk on the importance of preserving our heritage.
