Time to Shine Singing Competition

One night. One song. One chance.

For the first year in the history of our renowned Butterfly Ball, we’re opening the stage and giving you a once in a lifetime opportunity to shine.

Our ‘Time to Shine’ singing competition allows you to take centre stage and leave a lasting impression at The Butterfly Ball this year by singing one song to an audience of over 700 people.

Happening at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London, on Thursday 14th June 2018, Caudwell Children’s annual Butterfly Ball is one of the UK’s most exclusive charity events attracting worldwide media attention.

Annually the ball plays hosts to a selection of corporate, high net worth and celebrity attendees from the world of sport, TV and film. Previous Butterfly Ball headline acts have included Lionel Richie, Kylie Minogue, Sir Elton John and Sir Rod Stewart.

Our ‘Time to Shine’ singing competition is being judged by a host of household names in the music and entertainment industry including Peter Andre, Boyzone’s Mikey Graham and entertainer Jonathan Wilkes.

An opportunity not to be missed, our ‘Time to Shine’ competition allows you to grace the same stage as music legends whilst helping us raise funds to transform the lives of disabled children.

Time to Shine Competition Winner!


Katharine Slater

Since a young age Katharine has seen the work that charities and volunteer organisations do for people with disabilities; more specifically, for her brother. Growing up with a brother who has Down’s Syndrome she never knew that it was assumed if you had that little extra chromosome people would expect less of you in life.

Katharine chose to sign makaton alongside her song to make her performance more inclusive and accessible to those who have more limited communication, like her brother. Katharine says: “I am by no means a professional musician – I simply love to perform and bring music into people’s lives!”
