Newham Business of The Year Presentation Dinner tickets are now on sale

  • Stratford Town Hall
This year we are sponsoring the Customer Service - Small/Micro-Business category for the prestigious Newham Business of the Year awards 2017. We encouraged all of our members to apply for the award, offering 2 free tickets to this year's black tie event to any of our businesses that applied. We are pleased to announce that four of our members are finalists!

Last year, 211 people attended the inaugural event. Networking between tables during course breaks is encouraged and there are plenty of other opportunities to get to know fellow business people – at the drinks reception, during the dancing or in the bar.

The evening starts with a drinks reception and a welcome from the Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales. Then we climb the beautiful staircase to the Grand Hall for our meal.

On the table will be bottles of red and white wine, Elder-flower cordial and water, plus butter for your rolls.

- Your starter will also be there to welcome you – it’s a smoked and poached salmon terrine with a watercress and cucumber (roasted vegetable terrine with the same salad for those advance booking the vegetarian option). NB: Gluten and dairy free food is also available throughout the meal, but MUST be booked in advance.

- The main course: Roast chicken breast with champagne, tomato and tarragon sauce, served with new potatoes, chantenay carrots and green beans. The alternative is mushroom pithivier with champagne, tomato and tarragon sauce and the same vegetables.

- The dessert is a scrumptious dark chocolate torte with Chantilly cream and fresh berries. The alternative is a gluten and dairy-free chocolate cake with fresh berries.

Then it’s coffee and time to listen to our guest speaker, Newham Chief Executive Kim Bromley-Derry, the presentation of winners – described last year by experienced event attenders as “the most professional we have seen” – and dancing.

The winners will leave for interviews and photographs when the dancing starts.

The prestigious event is being held on Thursday, October 5th at Stratford Old Town Hall, Broadway, Stratford, E15 4BQ, 6.30pm for 7pm.

Tickets cost £50 plus vat (total: £60)
