In-house Lawyers Annual Dinner returns to Leeds in February 2016
An in-house lawyers’ annual dinner has been revived by the new C&I Group committee.
The Yorkshire Commerce & Industry Group Annual Dinner returns to Leeds city centre on Friday 5th February.
This flagship charity fundraising event, geared to Yorkshire’s in-house legal community, will see up to 200 lawyers in attendance at the Leeds City Museum venue.
The format has been refreshed and the theme for this coming year will quite simply be “Yorkshire” – which may lead to the donning of some interesting attire, if the dress code is anything to go by! Ticketing information will follow shortly from the Yorkshire Division of The C&I Group.
Originally designed in the 1800’s by the renowned Yorkshire architect, Cuthbert Brodrick, the Leeds City Museum is an iconic Leeds building close to Millennium Square and there can be no finer venue for Yorkshire themed party!
Following a drinks reception in the Leeds Story Gallery, guests will make their way down the sweeping staircase to the Broderick Hall for dinner. The hall’s floor is embossed with an extraordinary map of Leeds, creating a talking point for guests.
Entertainment will be ‘all Yorkshire’, with music provided by the three-piece rock and pop band, Northern Vinyl whose repertoire has something for everyone.
Date: 5th February 2016.
Time: 7.30 pm (carriages @ 1 am).
Dress Code: Black Tie (optional) – Tweed jackets and flat caps welcome!
Sponsored by: Florit Brooke and Lexis Nexis
Tickets: £45 each (or £420 for a table of ten).
The event is in aid of the charity Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, which cares for families who have a child with a life shortening condition and is a very worthwhile cause. There will be a balloon raffle on the night, and prize donations are invited from in-house legal departments of companies based in Yorkshire, as well as local law firms and other businesses partnered with the Yorkshire legal community.
