Annual Gala Dinner

Description: The South African Chamber of Commerce UK’s Annual Gala Dinner will take place at Mansion House from 6pm on Tuesday, March 22nd.

Mansion House is an extremely prestigious venue in the City of London. Within the “square mile”, it is the official residence of the Lord Mayor of the City of London.

Our host and keynote speaker for the evening will be a recent Lord Mayor, Sir Peter Estlin. Peter has a long history in the City, the City Corporation and the Livery. With a financial services background as CFO of Barclays Bank, he understands international finances and trade between the City and beyond.

We'll also be addressed by the Rt Hon the Lord Peter Hain, former Government Minister and esteemed South African and the Rt Hon the Lord Paul Boateng, former British High Commissioner to South Africa.

The full programme can be viewed here.

This year promises to be the Chamber’s most prestigious Gala event and a premiere networking opportunity for our members and supporters; a time to throw off the shackles imposed by COVID and enjoy the pleasures of conversation in person, allowing us to build new business opportunities and friendships within the South African orientated community in the UK.

The evening’s focus will be convivial company, excellent wine, and sumptuous food in a truly impressive venue.

The entertainment will be provided by South African performers Nic and Pearl Vani and their backing group.  Nic is well known for his lead role in the London West End show, The Lion King.

The dress code for the night is Black Tie and the evening begins with wonderful opportunity to network during a drinks reception, followed by a silver service, three-course dinner.

The menu is viewable here.

If you have any dietary requirements or preferences, you should enter them on your "My Details" page (you will need to be logged in to the website to access this, or create an account if you don't have one, if you click the link you'll be guided through the process) so that we can pass them on to the kitchen in advance of the evening. Please ask your guests to do the same, or drop us a line with their requirements. Otherwise, the advertised dishes in the menu will be served.

Mansion House closes to visitors at 10.30pm, so please consider the ticket option that includes after-dinner drinks which will be held, for ticket holders only, next door to Mansion House at No 1 Lombard Street. At least your first two drinks will be covered by the ticket price, and we will switch to a cash bar when the ceiling sponsorship by the Chamber has been reached.

The tickets are available to SA Chamber members and non-members.  Seats will only be confirmed on full payment for tickets purchased being received.

You may book by the seat, several seats or for a whole table of 10.
You may cancel with full refund only if we are notified more than seven days before the event.  If the venue is required to cancel, all monies will be refunded.
