The evening will involve a Champagne reception in the Old Library, a top class 3-course dinner in the grand surroundings of the Great Hall, thought-provoking speakers, a silent auction and exciting entertainment as well as a chance to bid for a small number of money-can’t-buy prizes in the live auction.
