Wynyard Stockton-on-Tees Billingham TS22 5NF

For two centuries, our annual dinner has taken precedence in the region’s business community as one of the North East’s key business events. Our annual celebration of the region’s business community moves in 2024 to a new format and venue.

Hosted by the beautiful Wynyard Hall with 500 of our leading businesspeople enjoying dinner throughout the hall, followed by live entertainment and some surprises.

Tastes have changed. We’ve seen a reduced appetite for formality and lengthy speeches or interruptions. Our flagship annual dinner is moving forward with a new concept in corporate entertaining.

With no formalities, no formal speaker, and a new approach; our dinner focuses on giving you the time to enjoy the evening with clients and colleagues, while ‘taking over’ one of our region’s most stunning stately homes.

Get ready to connect with fellow business leaders, professionals and business people from across the North East, while enjoying delicious cuisine and drinks.

Whether you’re seeking new connections, business opportunities, or simply a night of fun, this event promises to be the highlight of your summer.

DINNER PATRONS

We’re incredibly grateful to our event patron’s Gateshead CollegePulsant and Womble Bond Dickinson; without their support this event would not be possible.

Shared tables are usually hosted by one of the Chamber team to ensure everyone is introduced and looked after.

SMALL BUSINESS SUBSIDISED TICKETS

We’re delighted that through our event small business supporter Intuit, we’re able to offer 50 tickets (at two tickets max. per booking) to small business members only at a discounted rate.

DRESS CODE

Smart summer and cocktail party wear. We want everyone to feel comfortable while enjoying this stylish evening event, but we would recommend dressing to impress.

CATERING

Included in the ticket price is a reception drink and canapes, a two course English summer BBQ themed dinner followed by dessert stations throughout the hall. Table drinks will be pre-ordered direct with Wynyard Hall and card-only bars are open on the night.

Further details on ordering drinks, supplying dietary requirements and guest names will be released after Easter 2024.

WHAT MAKES THIS DINNER DIFFERENT?

Unlike previous dinners, this event does not include a series of formal speeches and proceedings. The reception at the start of the evening is over an hour and a half. Guest tables will be spread right throughout Wynyard Hall, while time spent at the table will be shorter. This is all to allow guests to enjoy the night without interruption and enjoy Wynyard Hall like never before.

After dinner, there will be a variety of entertainment running right through the Hall throughout the night, including singers, bands and much more still to be announced. This really will be the Chamber’s house party and the business event of the year.
