It is one of the year's most prestigious events, and on 22 June the Butterfly Ball is also set to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as HELLO! can reveal that eight-time Grammy winner and triple Academy Award winner Burt Bacharach will be among the performers taking to the stage at the star-studded fundraiser for Caudwell Charity.
"It is an honour to be invited to perform at the Butterfly Ball in London," said Burt. "I'm proud to be supporting a charity that does so much great work for disabled children and families affected by autism."
The acclaimed songwriter is famous for composing some of the greatest love tracks of all time, including Walk On By, Anyone Who Had a Heart and What The World Needs Now Is Love.
