Friends Gala Dinner
in aid of Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
We are delighted to announce details of the Friends of OCHS Annual Dinner, which will be held at the City Rooms in Leicester on 19th November 2011.
The City Rooms, in the heart of Leicester City Centre, is a magnificent venue featuring a majestic Grand Ballroom, where our event will be held.
The evening will feature our special guest speaker, finance guru Alpesh Patel, musical entertainment and something that’s guaranteed to make you giggle – and yet another highlight will be the sumptuous full four-course vegetarian dinner served in this grand setting by the venue’s friendly staff. The standard of service and
attention to detail always stand out at the City Rooms, and perfectly compliment the sheer beauty of the setting.
