They’re used to battling it out within the walls of Westminster, but now Peers and MPs are putting brawn before brains in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support’s 33rd legendary Tug of War event.
A firm favourite in London’s social calendar, this year’s event is taking place on June in the Westminster Abbey College Gardens, and will be compèred by BBC Deputy Political Editor John Pienaar.
The evening, sponsored by Banham, will feature matches between rival city firms and Macmillan’s corporate partners, culminating in an almighty clash between members of the House of Lords and House of Commons. This year a record 26 teams will take part.
Guests of this quintessentially British affair will enjoy a drinks and canapé reception in the idyllic gardens, as well as entertainment from musicians and performance artists.
All money raised will help Macmillan continue to provide emotional, financial, medical and practical support to people living with cancer. Since the inaugural event in 1987, Macmillan Cancer Support’s Tug of War has raised over £3 million.
