Over 70 stars from the world of hospitality are to return to their roots and wait on guests at a gala dinner in aid of Hospitality Action.
Advisor and consultant Philip Newman-Hall and Danny Pecorelli, managing director of Exclusive Hotels & Venues, are to host ‘Back to the Floor 4’ on Friday 26 April at The Dorchester on London’s Park Lane, working with some of the industry’s most experienced to serve over 400 guests a three course meal.
Champagne will be served kindly donated by Laurent-Perrier.
The ‘waiters’ for the evening will include: Zoe Jenkins of Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park, Sue Williams of Whatley Manor, Harry Murray MBE of Lucknam Park and Amanda Hyndman of the Mandarin Oriental.
‘Sommeliers’ will include Simon Numphud of AA Hotel Services and Julia Sibley of The Savoy Educational Trust.
Peter Hancock of Pride of Britain Hotels will act as compère for the evening.
Zoe Jenkins, general manager of Coworth Park, said: “This event is always great fun as many of us taking part haven’t tested our waiting skills for a good number of years. Everyone is very keen to smash the £100,000 fundraising target and hopefully we won’t smash too many plates along the way!”
Individual tickets are £165 each or £1,500 for a table of ten and special room rates for the evening are available at The Dorchester, Grosvenor House A JW Marriott Hotel and London Hilton on Park Lane.
