The ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Gala Dinner invites 350 of the live music industry's masterminds and top investigators to climb aboard for an evening of mystery, mayhem and award giving.
The journey commences at the luxurious 8Northumberland hotel, which boasts one of the grandest Victorian interiors in London, and is just yards from Trafalgar Square. Just as the Orient Express found fame traveling from Paris to Constantinople, passengers will undertake a culinary journey of their own through an exquisite five-star, four-course feast with a selection of fine wines to match. Along the journey, there’ll be stops for the annual ILMC pop quiz and some utterly unforgettable entertainment courtesy of TV presenter and magician extraordinaire Nigel Mead, before the final destination of the evening: The Arthur Awards 2017.
As excitement builds, the mystery of who will take home one of the coveted statuettes will finally be solved as conductress extraordinaire Emma Banks hosts the industry’s favourite awards ceremony in her own inimitable style.
Continuing the country focus of ILMC gala dinners, and with Switzerland a traditional stop on the Orient Express route, the evening will be hosted by a collective of Swiss companies.
Tickets for The Gala Dinner are priced at £185 per passenger.
The dress code for this event is smart or simply decadent. Passengers arriving in T-shirts will be politely shown to the third-class carriage…
