The event, founded by Ronan Keating, is now in it’s 11th year of bringing these two organisations together to fund Roadshow units around the UK. Each year the units carry out life-changing work and the Emeralds & Ivy Ball has raised over £7 million over the last 10 years to keep these vital units out on the road.
The evening was hosted by James Nesbitt and entertainment included special performances by Simple Minds, Vogue Williams and Ronan Keating with his band.
