SCS Annual Dinner


Book your place

The SCS Annual Dinner, will be taking place from 19:00 on the 13 November 2018 in the Premier Lounge at the Ricoh Arena.

The picture and video wall are back so if you have any photographs or graphics from the 1940s to the present day, especially old SCS events, past presidents, cosmetic or brand innovation from 1948-2018, please do send them to the SCS.

The reception area will host the Gallery, along with some relaxing sofas and chilled music, for people more interested in chatting than dancing!!


This year the SCS celebrates it’s 70th birthday, the Annual Dinner will be a 70th Celebration Party.

Complete with a Gallery to commemorate and showcase cosmetic innovation, brands, products, looks, popular culture and global events from the last 7 decades as well as a window to the future. The colour scheme for the dinner will be a mix of Platinum, Gold and Black and yes there will be birthday cake!!

Dinner Jackets, Ball Gowns, cocktail dresses and fancy dress from the historical decades will be very welcome but please wear whatever you are comfortable in and make sure you bring your dancing shoes, the DJ will want to fill the dancefloor.

Also at the Dinner...

The award for the SCS’ Laura Marshall Memorial Award for Innovation will be presented during the evening.

In addition, last year we raised £2,000 for Look Good Feel Better, the global cosmetic industries charity who run free skincare and make up workshops for women, men and teenagers to help them cope with the visible effects of cancer treatment.

The guys and girls from Arthur Edward will be encouraging you to play heads and tails and buy raffle tickets with a chance to win a Magnum of Champagne to get to that £2,000 donation once again.

Please note that places for the dinner are limited, and they are allocated on a first come first served basis. All tickets must be paid for prior to 12 October 2018 – any bookings made after this date will require payment on booking.

Dietary requirements: Please only include if you are vegetarian or if you have any allergies.  The dinner menu contains meat and pork and if you do not wish to have these in your meal, please opt for the vegetarian choice.  Vegetarian meals will only be provided for pre-orders.
