The Nelson Mandela Scottish Memorial Foundation is holding this fundraising gala dinner to celebrate the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela in this centenary year of his birth, and to raise funds both for a permanent memorial in Nelson Mandela Place, Glasgow and for the educational activities which the statue is designed to promote. More information about the Foundation can be found on its website at mandelascottishmemorial.org

2018 sees also the 25th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s visit to Glasgow in 1993 to receive the Freedoms of 9 UK cities, districts and boroughs, and the dinner will also mark that historic occasion. The Glasgow Hilton was where he stayed during that visit to Scotland.

The evening will feature a panel of special guests who will share their “Memories of Mandela”. Marah Louw, prominent South African singer and actor who famously sang and danced on stage with Nelson Mandela at the 1993 rally in Glasgow’s George Square, is coming specially from Johannesburg to sing for us, as well as taking part in the panel. Anita Manning, professional auctioneer and TV presenter, will conduct the auction.  Dave Anderson, actor, playwright and well known personality will be the Master of Ceremonies.  There will be footage of Nelson Mandela’s visit to Glasgow. The price includes a pre-dinner drinks reception, a three-course meal with half a bottle of wine per person, tea/coffee and a superb evening of celebration of Nelson Mandela and his historic links with Scotland.

For anyone wishing overnight accommodation following the dinner the Hilton offers a 15% discount to ticket holders booking at least 10 days in advance and quoting an event discount code. Contact the organiser for details if required.

 Dress code: Lounge suit or traditional dress.
