For the American contingent in London, NEC members Jane Hines, Amy Robson and Blake Pike created a spectacular Halloween party for grown-ups in 2005. Featuring costumes to rival the most outrageous of London’s West End theatre or Broadway, each annual event followed themes such as Gods & Monsters, Famous & Infamous, Round the World in 80 Days or Mardi Gras.
In 2009, the event turned to children’s entertainment. 568 children and their families enjoyed a private screening and lunch, raising over £15,000. Overall, Fright & Delight raised over £370,000 for Cancer Research UK.
