The Russian Ball in London is an exciting event that focuses attention to the rich history of Russia, the similarities between Russian and English cultures and, building a bridge between the two nations to achieve peace and harmony.

Event Patron, princess Olga Romanoff

Princess Olga Romanoff, a descendent of Tsar Nicholas II, the last tsar of Russia has kindly agreed to be a patron of the event. The Ball will be opened by sixty debutantes and their partners, representing a diversity of countries such as the US, UK, Russia, Georgia, Malta and Estonia – making this a truly international cultural event.  It will also be a memorable occasion for making new friends and contacts.

Best known for its glittering Viennese Ball in Moscow, and also for a series of spectacular balls all over the world, in cities including Kiev, Rome, Vienna, Montreux and Almaty.
The first Russian Ball in London took place at the Royal Albert Hall in December 2013, and was deemed to be a triumph. Guests were treated to performances by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Prima Ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre, Evgenia Obraztsova, amongst many other stellar artists.

Charitable Cause

The Russian Ball supports the charity “Life Line” (www.life-line.ru/eng/) that provides medical assistance to severely ill children. Funds for the charity will be raised during the evening through some great auction prizes. A considerable sum was raised at last year’s event, a part of which was donated to the Russian Orthodox Church in London.
