Tickets

All guests will need a ticket to gain entry and we will be emailing the person who made the gala booking with this.

Guests will either need to print this ticket or have it ready on their device to show the door staff.

Dietary requirements and other special requirements

It is vital that we are aware of any special dietary requirements in advance to guarantee everyone’s needs are met on the night. We will email the contact who booked your seat or table for this information. You can also contact us direct if you know which party you are sitting with.

Dietary requirements include vegetarian or vegan meals, or if certain foods must be excluded due to medical, religious or ethical reasons. Dietary requirements do not cover general likes and dislikes.

The vegetarian and vegan meal options will only be available to those that have notified us in advance. Any dietary requirements not notified to us by 29 October 2021 may not be able to be accommodated.

Please also let us know if any of your guests have additional needs or requirements.

Table plan and seating at the table 

We will ask for guest names to put on our table plan, which will be displayed outside the ballroom. 

We do not allocate individual seats at any table.

Names and organisations will be used on our table plan so everyone can easily locate their table in the ballroom. The table plan will be on display during the drinks reception, but we do not otherwise share anyone’s details.
