City Dinner

The City Dinner is our flagship event and biggest annual fundraiser. The event attracts guests from a wide range of City firms within the financial, insurance, and legal sectors.

The City Dinner always promises an unforgettable night in a spectacular venue, whilst raising vital funds for Back Up’s life-changing services. The event has raised over £2 million since it began, all going towards our work to support people affected by spinal cord injury across the UK. Past guests have included actress and model Kelly Brook, rugby union stars Ben Cohen, Lewis Moody and James Haskell, as well as Eric Lanlard, celebrity pâtissier, and Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff.

Join us for our next event on Thursday 30 April 2020, a chance to enjoy live music, a delicious three-course meal and money-can’t-buy auction prizes at the stunning Merchant Taylors’ Hall.

Our 2019 event was an incredible success, raising over £170,000! On the night we had iconic entertainment from JD King and Motor City Soul, in addition to amazing auction lots from Amanda Holden and Henri Leconte.
