Please join us in celebrating the 20th Annual Co-operation Ireland Legal Dinner, which will be held at the Dorchester Hotel on Thursday 18 May 2017.

Following the huge success of the 2016 event, where we raised over £50,000 for Co-operation Ireland, we anticipate a very early demand for tables. 

The Black Tie event will commence at 7pm with a champagne reception followed by a four course dinner and auction. In recognition of our longstanding association with the Hotel, the Dorchester's executive chef, Henry Brosi, has kindly offered to create a special 20th Anniversary menu which will be nothing short of fabulous. 

Once again there will be dancing and wonderful music from London's most exciting céilí band, Ceilidh Generation, a group which brings a new twist to classic Irish tunes, creating a perfect accompaniment to unadulterated fun. The dancing will be extended into the early hours. 

Further details can be found by downloading our Event Information, Booking Form and Sponsorship Package documents.  For any queries please contact harrietjpaul@gmail.com (Event Co-ordinator).
