We are delighted to announce the 2017 gala dinner will be held at The Grand Café in Southampton.
Wednesday 5 April 2017
7pm until late
The Grand Café
South Western House
As one of Southampton’s most exciting and prestigious venues, The Grand Café is steeped in history with architectural features dating back to the 1800’s. The main staircase was the prototype for the grand staircase on the Titanic and many of the more wealthy guests of the Titanic stayed at the hotel the night before they set sail.
The building played host to many other distinguished guests. Two very notable ones were Winston Churchill and Dwight Eisenhower during the Second World War. The men planned the D Day invasion in one of the small public rooms on the first floor. There is also photographic evidence that the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother visited the hotel and indeed danced in the original Wedgwood Ballroom which is now home to the main restaurant.
Promising a night to remember, the evening will start with pre-dinner drinks, followed by a 3 course meal and live entertainment.
Tickets are £85 excl vat per person.
The night is guaranteed to be a sell out so interested parties are encouraged to book their tickets fast. For more information and tickets, please email Apinya Clark: [email protected]
