PACE, the LGBT mental health charity, is holding a very special event on Thursday 27 February at Café de Paris to mark their 30th anniversary, dubbed ‘Bright Night: a bit of a do about something that matters’.

The night will feature PACE’s new Patron, Will Young alongside the brilliantly acerbic comedian Jen Brister, and is being held to raise much-needed funds to help this charity to continue providing vital services to the LGBT community. There will be an auction, lots of music, dancing and laughter.


Some of the auction prizes are quite astonishing, including a specially-made Grayson Perry sculpture, a Versace suit worn by Elton John, a ski holiday in the French Alps from European Gay Ski Week, a private capsule on the London Eye and many others (see the full list below).

PACE provide face-to-face and online support, counselling and advice services covering all aspects of life, including relationships, coming out, mental health and domestic abuse. Although London-based, they provide services nationwide so LGBT people anywhere can access the support they need.

Unfortunately, recent funding cuts have meant that PACE is facing some tough times ahead and Bright Night is an opportunity to raise the essential funds that keep their services running.


Tickets for this glitzy and fun night are £55 (or £120 for VIP, which includes a meet and greet, private lounge and VIP bar). We have negotiated a 30% discount for our readers by entering promo code LTDGAYUKPROMO at
