The 2017 Smile4Wessex Gala Dinner

We are delighted to announce that the 13th Annual Smile4Wessex Gala Dinner will be held on Saturday 14th October 2017 at what is without question one of the most prestigious venues in Hampshire.
The fabulous Hampshire Ballroom at the Hilton Ageas Bowl (just off J7 of the M27), which only opened in May 2015, can accommodate over 200 guests and we hope to fill it with as many friends, old and new, as possible. We are again offering incentives for early bookings, and have negotiated substantially discounted accommodation rates for those who wish to stay over and enjoy the superb facilities to be found at the Hilton Ageas Bowl.
Guests will enjoy a sparkling drinks reception, an excellent 3-course dinner (with a choice of menu), and the after dinner entertainment will again be provided by the utterly brilliant Strand Band, one of the South's best party bands and long time supporters of Smile4Wessex.
