Gala Dinner 2024
|The Chamber is delighted to announce that for the third consecutive year, our Annual Gala Dinner will be hosted at the iconic Mansion House, the Official Residence of the Mayor of the City of London. While in previous years we’ve had the privilege of being hosted by former Lord Mayors, this year we’re especially honoured to be hosted by the sitting Lord Mayor, The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli, with whom the Chamber has had a growing relationship over a number of years.
The Lord Mayor’s theme for 2023-24 is “Connect to Prosper”, promoting the idea that we can achieve more by working together. He has long had an interest in South Africa, and we are very excited to be hosted by him, and through him to build our relationship with the City to keep South Africa connected and help it to prosper.
Mansion House, which sits right in the heart of the City, opposite the Bank of England, is a delightful place to visit, replete with gilt-topped stone columns, marble statues and exquisite art works. The Egyptian Hall, where we’ll be seated for the dinner, is a light and airy space, situated under an amazing, vaulted ceiling with mezzanine levels at each end which are backed by stained glass windows.
The Chamber’s premiere event of the year, the Gala Dinner provides a wonderful opportunity to network with peers, business associates and friends, meet members of the Chamber, Executive, Board and Advisory Board, while enjoying the finest foods and wines.
Tickets now available!
Each ticket includes a champagne reception, a three-course meal, coffee and petit fours, wine and entertainment. The Lord Mayor, Lady Mayoress and the two Sheriffs will be represented accompanied by representatives of the UK and SA governments.
Entertainment will be led by a five-piece band from The London Banqueting Ensemble.
Our keynote speaker for the evening will be announced in due course.
We'll be welcomed to The Mansion House by The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor, Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli and The Lady Mayoress, Mrs Elisabeth Mainelli.
Michael Mainelli was elected as Lord Mayor of the City of London on 29 September 2023 and took office on 10 November 2023. He previously served Sheriff of the City of London from 2019-2021, being granted an extraordinary second year in that office, the first time since 1228, in order to provide continuity during the Covid-19 pandemic.
