Launde 900: Gala Dinner
22nd June, 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm£55
Join us for this Ancient Wells – Living Water event to mark the 900th anniversary of Launde Abbey: a fabulous black tie dinner with guest speaker Adrian Plass.
Served in a sumptuously arrayed marquee in the stunning grounds of Launde Abbey, this dinner will offer an opportunity to experience Launde’s famed hospitality and cuisine at it’s finest. Enjoy a superb meal and drinks, the sparkling company and conversation of your fellow guests, and the glorious warmth of a summer evening surrounded by the Abbey gardens.
Our after-dinner speaker, Adrian Plass, has been a writer of humour, fiction, drama and Bible-notes for more than thirty years, and is right on the cusp of understanding that he understands nothing. He does, however, have an increasing fondness for God and a lot of questions still to ask. In recent years Adrian has been able to work closely with his wife Bridget, performing in every kind of venue you can imagine, and some you cannot. Over the last ten years they have been closely connected with Scargill House Conference Centre in Yorkshire, leading and teaching events on a variety of Christian themes. They particularly enjoy creating spaces in which people can laugh a lot and feel free to tell and hear the truth.
