On Friday, 10 February 2012 the New Zealand Society will be hosting the Waitangi Day Charity Dinner at one of the most spectacular Livery Halls in the City of London: Plaisterers' Hall at One London Wall.
In addition to hosting the New Zealand High Commissioner, and other special guests, we will also have the three finalists of the UK New Zealander of the Year Award 2012 at the Dinner. The European Regional Manager of Air New Zealand will be announcing the winner of the Award who (courtesy of Air New Zealand) will receive free return travel for two from the UK to New Zealand. Following the formal dinner, there will be dancing and a cash bar available.
All net proceeds from the Waitangi Day Charity Dinner, as well as the Charity Raffle to be held during the evening, will go to the New Zealand Society's Charity Fund.
The evening will be a formal affair, with ladies in evening wear and gentlemen in black tie.
The Waitangi Day Charity Dinner is the most prestigious event of the New Zealand calendar in the UK and the surroundings of Plaisterers' Hall are simply breathtaking, making the evening a truly memorable event.
Numbers are strictly limited for this event, and tickets are available as follows: Members (£115), Non-Members (£130) and Tables of 10 (£1,150). To book, please click here.
