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.

Please note that due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event has been moved from April to October. 

We are delighted that Barbara Broccoli, our Founding Patron, is generously supporting our next event which will take place at the stunning Merchant Taylors’ Hall on Wednesday 14 October 2020 with a Bond theme. Join us to enjoy live music, a delicious three-course meal and money-can’t-buy auction prizes.

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.
