Autumn Dinner 2017

The 2017 Save the Rhino Autumn Dinner will take place at the Honourable Artillery Company, a stunning venue in the heart of the City of London, on Thursday 28 September. Guests will enjoy a drinks reception in the medal rooms with an opportunity to explore the HAC museum, a three course dinner with wine and several inspiring speakers who, taking influence from the Japanese Pecha-Kucha speaking style (20 slides each shown for 20 seconds), will address the evening’s audience with their own personal take on 'Journeys'.

There will also be a silent auction and raffle on the night, with a chance to win holidays and other fantastic prizes.
