Apart from the opportunity to rub shoulders with a star studded celebrity audience there will also be loads of fantastic prizes and give-aways.

Tender is a new movement to end domestic violence which has been created by the registered charity Until The Violence stops. It aims to raise consciousness and challenge abusive behaviour using edcuation, the arts and social awareness. Tender's Director Tamsin Larby describes how as a social taboo we need men to introduce the subject and create a framework within which domestic violence can be discussed and elevate the inherent strength conveyed by the gentler side of masculinity as well as make violence a weak and unacceptable choice.

No Slap Just Tickle is produced by Tender with the support of the Mayor of London and in association with the Metropolitan Police.
