The annual event attracts guests from a wide range of City firms within the banking, insurance, and legal sector. City Dinner always promises an unforgettable night in a spectacular venue, whilst raising vital funds for Back Up’s life-changing services.

Thank you to everyone who came or contributed to our 2018 City Dinner event which took place on Thursday 3 May at Merchant Taylors Hall.  Together, we raised over £166,000 – an incredible amount which will all go towards our vital work supporting 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.

On the night we had sparkling entertainment from Emily Estelle and Motor City Soul and amazing auction lots from Kelly Brook and Henri Leconte who were in attendance.
