Gala Dinner

Gala Dinner & Fundraiser - Saturday 13th July

Celebrating 40 years at 104 Tonbridge Road

July 1979 saw a defining moment in the School’s history with the official opening of our first independent premises at 104 Tonbridge Road.  This summer we’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary in style with a Gala event at our Boxley House campus.  The Gala promises to be a truly memorable occasion and a great opportunity for ESO Alumni to reunite and celebrate with some familiar faces, friends and colleagues.

5pm to 7pm

The event is very much in keeping with our values of ‘Tradition with Vision’.  We’ll begin with arrival drinks and talks from some very special guests. As well as reflecting on the achievements and influence of the ESO, in the UK and across Europe, we’ll be looking ahead to new opportunities unfolding for the profession.  We’ll also be revealing some exciting plans for development of the ESO teaching clinic.

Guest speakers to include: Margery Bloomfield, ESO Patron and Co-Founder, Barrie Savory, Simon Fielding, Graham Mason and Representation from the Institute of Osteopathy

7pm to Midnight

An evening of fine dining and music, with the chance to bid on some fabulous items as part of our charity auction.  We’ll also be holding a raffle with some fantastic prizes, including cash prizes and gifts donated by the Kings Arms public house in Boxley, Kent County Cricket, Experience Days, Leeds Castle and Cafe Frederic. Our thanks for each for their support

All proceeds from the event will go toward development of the Clinic and Tonbridge Road site.
