Since 2012 we have been honoured to host a Gala reception each year in the presence of the President of Creative Youth, HRH The Earl of Wessex, KG, GCVO, in aid of the charity Creative Youth, organisers of the International Youth Arts Festival.

Many of the young companies that Creative Youth mentors attend the dinner and this highly enjoyable night includes performances throughout the evening from some upcoming young talents, often including some that will be showcasing their work at that year’s IYAF.


The 2018 Gala Dinner is on Monday 3 December  at 6.30pm and will be held at Glenmore House, Surbiton. There will be delicious food and drink, entertainment, celebrity guests, a raffle and an auction.

Tickets are £100 per person or £900 for a table of ten. This includes sparkling wine and canapes on arrival, meal with half a bottle of wine per person and coffee. Why not get a group together for this very special evening?

To book tickets please email: or contact our office on 0208 549 2120.
