The Brain Trust Charity will be hosting its Annual Dinner and Brain of The Year Award Ceremony at Anton Mosimann’s celebrated club and restaurant.

The evening will include champagne and cocktails, a four-course, five-star dinner overseen by Anton himself, and will include his especially selected Mosimann’s wines.

The evening will also feature a fundraising auction by The Rt Hon Sir Jeremy Hanley, KCMG PC former Chairman of the Conservative Party.  Fundraising will include items and resources donated by supporters of the charity.
