Grand Hotel, Eastbourne
Friday 21 Apr 2023
06:00 PM - 11:00 PM
This year, the Annual Dinner relocates to the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne. As one of the highlights of our social calendar, this black-tie event aims to attract Eastbournian Society members (not just OEs) who are more local to Eastbourne, with the intention to return to London again in 2024. The Grand first hosted our Annual Dinner in 1905!
Affectionately known as The White Palace, the Grand Hotel Eastbourne commands breathtaking views of the sea and the dramatic cliffs at Beachy Head. The Grand Hotel is the only 5 star luxury resort to be found in an English seaside town. The event will take place in the magnificent Compton Room (formerly the ballroom).
The cost of the evening is £85 per person and the price includes:
Drink on arrival
Three-course banquet dinner
Half a bottle of wine per person
Coffee and petit fours
Special guest speaker
A concession price of £50 for under 30s or current Eastbourne College/St Andrews staff are also available. Non-alcoholic packages are also available upon request.
The event is not profit making, and we are actively seeking sponsorship. Please contact us if you would like to discuss one of the packages available. The packages include places at the dinner.
At this stage, we are seeking expressions of interest. Please press 'I would like to attend' below and complete the pre-registration form.
