Perennial’s Patron, HRH Princess Alexandra, and President, Alan Titchmarsh VMH, will attend a glittering 180th Anniversary Festival Dinner on 11 October 2019. The black-tie event will be held at the award-winning 5-star Corinthia Hotel in London. Guests will enjoy a champagne reception with live music from harpist Hayley Wild. It will then be followed by an exquisite three course dinner. An after dinner speech from Alan Titchmarsh will lead into an exciting live auction. Prizes will include the chance to spend the day with Alan and the team from ITV’s ‘Love Your Garden’ and Royal Circle Best tickets for the Royal Variety Show 2019.
Anita Bates, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Perennial, says:
“We’re delighted that HRH Princess Alexandra will be joining us for the evening at the Festival Dinner. Perennial’s history lies in the great estates of Britain and as we celebrate 180 years of the charity for people in horticulture, it’s important we recognise that we are as relevant today as we were in 1839. The Festival Dinner is a chance to show your support for Perennial in the company of friends, colleagues and well-known faces from across the industry. It’s a not-to-be missed event!”
The evening offers an opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues while enjoying great food, music and the exciting live auction, which this year features the chance to spend the day with Alan Titchmarsh and the team from ITV’s ‘Love Your Garden’ as they film an episode of the next series, a Caribbean holiday for six on the luxury island of Mustique and tickets for the royal circle at the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium on 18 November. All live auction prizes will be available for online bids on the Perennial website from 1 October and further auction and raffle prizes will be up for grabs on the night.
This year’s Festival Dinner is made possible with sponsorship from the London College of Garden Design and Lumley Insurance.
Individual Festival Dinner tickets cost £230 or a table of 10 is £2,200.
