SCS Annual Dinner

The Dinner is SOLD OUT

The SCS President, Jackie Searle loves musical theatre so the 2017 SCS Formulate Annual Dinner will be a Phantom of the Opera styled historical Masquerade Ball.

Expect to be dazzled by a vintage styled stage, candelabras, masks, feathers and a giant glitter ball. Dinner jackets, ball gowns, masks and fancy dress will be very welcome… but please wear whatever you are comfortable in and make sure you bring your dancing shoes.

For 2017 The SCS are shaking things up a bit and behind the vintage stage will be an ultra-modern video wall and DJ to stimulate your eyes and ears and encourage you to dance the night away. There will also be a quiet area and bar for people more interested in chatting than dancing!

We’ll have 2 very special acts to entertain you and your guests: a Cirque de Soleil type aerialist and contortionist will perform on the giant glitter ball and a musical theatre actor, who has performed in Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables, will perform a selection of show songs.

And of course the award for the SCS Laura Marshall Memorial Award for Innovation will be presented during the evening.

The team from Arthur Edward will be moving around with bags of sweets and raffle tickets for a chance to win a magnum of Champagne. We hope to raise £1,000 for the Look Good Feel Better global cosmetic industr charity that runs free skincare and make-up workshops for women and teenagers to help them cope with the visible effects of cancer treatment.
