Esplanade Charity Black Tie Gala

Esplanade will be holding its 2nd Charity Gala this September 2017. Building on the success of last year’s event where £7,500 was raised and split between 3 local charities.

The Black Tie Charity Gala will be on the 30th September at Gurnard Pines and already tickets are selling quickly. This isn’t surprising as the evening promises to be a fantastic one. The main draw is the 3-course meal generously provided and cooked by top Isle of Wight Chef Robert Thompson, click here to see the Menu. We are really excited to be running this event again in partnership with Robert, there were rave reviews for his catering at last year’s event and his staff ensured that everyone was properly looked after all night. Like Esplanade, Robert has kindly agreed that by donating his time and menu, 100% of the ticket sales and proceeds from the evening will be split between 3 local charities.

Also on the evening there will be a host of entertainment to keep the party going until the small hours. There will be a celebrity speaker who is yet to be announced, so watch this space! There will also be music from local band Pinstripe who will get everyone rocking. A disco will get all the diva’s up on to their feet! A funky photo-booth will ensure everyone has some fun photos to take home as a reminder of the evening. Also there will be a raffle and games with fabulous prizes to raise more money for the charities on the night.


Tickets are just £50 per person and tables are for 10. To purchase your tickets please call Lesley Insley on 01983 535612 or email .
