Step behind the velvet ropes at The Animal Ball - only on Vero.

On November 22nd 2016 London will be the stage for an extraordinary event - the second annual Animal Ball.

This star-studded event raises badly needed funds to support vitally important conservation work around the globe which helps protect some of our most endangered animal species. In place of a live auction and formal sit-down dinner favored by most fundraisers, the Animal Ball is doing something very different. Forty simultaneous private dinners will be held at some of London’s most exclusive venues - including The Ritz, Daphne’s and Sexy Fish - with each guest wearing a unique animal-inspired mask created for the event by some of the world’s leading fashion houses (including Chloe, Jimmy Choo and Burberry). After dinner the guest will move in masked packs onto the ball itself.
