SCHOOLS ANNUAL DINNER AND AUCTION
Tuesday 22 March 2011
At St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel
Euston Road, London, NW1 2AR
A Victorian masterpiece restored This year we are thrilled to be holding the Schools Annual Dinner & Auction at the newly renovated St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London. It will be the first event held there since 1935. Sir John Betjeman described this Gothic treasure as being “too beautiful and too romantic to survive”. After years of devoted restoration, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is being hailed as London’s most romantic building. Its glorious Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, handstenciled wall designs and grand staircase are as dazzling as the day Queen Victoria opened the hotel in 1873. Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott RA (Gilbert Scott achieved great eminence, becoming Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts from 1866 to 1873) to receive travellers through St Pancras Station, the former Midland Grand Hotel offers its guests a world of grandeur, luxury and fantasy behind its fairytale red façade. To reserve a room at the hotel on the night of the Dinner and Auction, at a discounted rate, please call 0800 221 222 or key in the special rate code ‘K6Y’ when booking online www.stpancrasrenaissance.co.uk. Please note that rooms are subject to availability.
