Former Strictly Come Dancing stars Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova led the entertainment, as DJ Dave Kid Jensen hosted a To Russia with Love themed party in Weybridge in aid of Eshers Princess Alice Hospice.
Over 900 supporters, including actress Debbie Arnold, model Diana Moran and comedian Tim Vine, visited Mercedes-Benz World for the evening, which was donated by local events company Best Parties Ever.
Guests were welcomed into a Russian winter wonderland, complete with snow-capped trees, ice bars, Cossack dancers and the backdrop of St Basils and the Kremlin.
The entertainment continued with magicians, members of the audience attempting Cossack dancing, an indoor firework finale and fairground dodgems, while a DJ kept the party going into the early hours of Sunday morning.
A silent auction, with lots including a luxury weekend in the Manor House at Atholl Palace, Scotland, private dance lessons at Karen Hardys luxury Chelsea studio and tickets for Wimbledon, raised tens of thousands of pounds for Princess Alice Hospice.
