You are invited to our Christmas Fundraising Dinner

October 25, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments
To be held on Sunday, December 8 at 1pm in the wonderfully grand banqueting suite of Bath’s Guildhall. The Guildhall’s most splendid room, with one of the most impressive Georgian interiors in Bath, spectacular decor and stunning crystal chandeliers. Nowhere will you experience the opulence of this magnificent Georgian city more acutely than in the mellowed surroundings of this historic building.

Funds raised from the evening will support the next phase of Viva!’s campaign for a foie gras free Britain. Following on from our victories, including stopping Amazon UK from stocking over 100 foie gras products, monies raised will help fund our new investigation in France of this terrible trade.

The three course vegan menu is of top gourmet quality by one of the UK’s most prestigious caterers, Searcy’s.

Tickets cost £85. BOOK NOW www.viva.org.uk/xmasdinner

Or book by post: please send your name, address and names of each person attending and their menu choices (see below), along with a cheque payable to Viva! to: Viva!, 8 York Court, Wilder St, Bristol BS2 8QH. Or book by phone, call Claire Morley on 0117 944 1000 (Mon-Fri, 9-5). This really is an evening to remember and we look forward to sharing it with you.
