On Friday 24th January, the President of the Leicestershire Law Society Glynis Wright was delighted to host the Annual Civic Dinner, which was a huge success enjoyed by esteemed guests of Leicestershire. We were honoured to have in our presence The Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Mike Kapur Esq OBE, The Rt. Worshipful Lord Mayor, Annette Byrne, The Chairman of the Leicestershire County Council Pam Posnett MBE, Lord Willy Bach and members of the Judiciary.
One hundred guests were welcomed in the Grand Hall at St Martins House with opening words from the President who celebrated the community and diversity within Leicester. This was followed by honourable guest and keynote speaker for the evening, Simon Davis, the National President for the Law Society of England and Wales.
The atmosphere of the evening was then accelerated with Indian Classical Dancers from Nupur Arts, plus an exclusive performance of Indian dance fusion from Rina & Priya.
Each year, the Annual Civic Dinner is an opportunity for Leicestershire Law Society to thank its supporters, patrons and sponsors, whilst bringing together the people who have helped to build Leicester’s community. In addition to presenting an excellent networking opportunity, great food and wonderful company, the dinner also highlights some of the brilliant creative talent we have locally.
