Our Dean and President, Professor Frank Bournois, and our U.K. Dean, Professor Simon Mercado, invite you to join them for the ESCP London Campus Bicentenary Gala on 8th March, 2019.
Our Bicentenary year is the perfect time to celebrate the innovative spirit embedded in ESCP’s genes, and this is the biggest celebration of the London Campus' social calendar! A pioneer for the past 200 years, ESCP can be proud of a large number of innovations successfully adopted all around the world. It remains the only pan-European school, with six campuses in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw, and an associated campus in Luxembourg.
And let's not forget that in 2019 we are officially UK Business School of the Year
, as recognised by the Times Higher Education Awards - known as the Oscars of our industry. What better time to come together and enjoy the achievements of this great School?
This year's event will take place at the iconic 8 Northumberland Avenue
, London, WC2N 5BY. Just a stone's throw away from Trafalgar Square, it is London's most central venue. The Grade II listed historic building has a rich history dating back to 1887, and now combines eclectic vintage Victorian architecture with a truly phenomenal space for celebration. Only the best for our 200th birthday!
The evening will begin at 7pm with a Champagne reception in The Old Billiard Room & Salon, including the chance to have your complimentary Gala portrait taken by our photography team. The call to dinner will be made at 8pm, gathering everyone in the Ballroom for a delicious three-course dinner prepared by Executive Chef & AlchemyLive's Director Nate Brewster. You will also be treated to surprise performances from guest entertainers, and the much coveted award for Student Society of the Year! The night will close on the dance floor, with music provided by a top DJ until late.
