  • November 16, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Experience an evening of champagne, canapes, a speech by Sir Timothy Ackroyd, beautiful photos for exhibition and auction, and stimulating debate around the concept of "Dignity", all for the charity Acumen!

One of our meetup members is involved in the organisation of this brilliant event - see below for more details, or this website link;


http://london.plusacumen.org/events/1555-revision-v1/


Acumen's volunteer-led arm, London+Acumen, is hosting its 3rd annual flagship DIGNITY Exhibition & Auction to highlight the importance of dignity, not dependence, in changing the way the world tackles poverty. DIGNITY does this through leveraging powerful photography to engage the public and generate social change. Join us for an exquisite night out with breathtaking photography, an inspiring crowd from all walks of life, an exclusive venue in central London, amazing artistic performances by Somita Basak, fantastic networking opportunities, and drinks and canapés...


The costs are;


General Ticket: £34.50 (if we get more than 5 keen there may be some reduction...)
Concessions Ticket*: £19.99
* Recipients of Universal or Pension Credit, full-time students and ages 16 and under - evidence required


I know the ticket price may seem a little high, but if you look at it you are getting a great evening of entertainment with some bites and drinks included.  A night out in London would normally cost at least the same, plus it is all for a great charity!


The approximate programme for the evening is;


6.30pm Doors open & viewing of photographs
7.00pm Welcome by London+Acumen
7.10pm Speech by Sir Timothy Ackroyd
7.15pm Classical South Indian performance portraying dignity through dance by Somita Basak
7.30pm Silent auction of photographs continues, drinks & canapes and networking
9.00pm Auction winners announced
9.15pm Drinks until late


I hope you will support this fantastic event!

    Hi there, I'm afraid I'm not going to make it as I have an ongoing illness that I can't shake. Completely appreciate that there's no refund, so hope a decent amount of the money will get to the charity. Sorry, I was really looking forward to this. :-(

      Looks like this is all go! Would you be ok to do a bank transfer for ticket price if i buy them?

      October 31, 2013

  • Carole S.

    How are we paying? Is it simply on the door? I imagine you would like to get an up front minimum to ensure the event pays for itself?

      Hi Carole - how are things going? Im looking at buying tickets soon. Would you be ok to do a paypal payment to me for the cost?

      October 31, 2013

    • Andrew

      Or even a bank transfer as would save paypal fees...

    Please don't apologise for the ticket price. Most of us pay more than this for a good night at the theatre or ballet. Be proud of the event, as it sounds amazing. I will be there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
