The Delaunay Presents

AN EVENING WITH...

The Delaunay plays host to intimate evenings with some of the leading stars of the stage, screen or written word (and sometimes all three), as they share the secrets to their success.

Each event will be hosted by veteran journalist, Tim Wapshott, who will lead the conversation with our guests to draw out their unique stories – and there will also be opportunities to put questions directly to the star themselves.

Throughout the evening, which will begin from 6.30pm for a 7pm start and finish by 10pm, you will hear insights and anecdotes from our guest – as well as have the opportunity to put your questions to them directly.

Priced at £85 per person, tickets include a bespoke three-course dinner and a welcome drink.

Tickets:

We will announce our next star guest shortly via our mailing list – make sure you’re subscribed to be the first to hear.

Information for booking:

Tables are available for 2, 3 or 4 people – and the maximum table size available is for 4 people, this is to ensure all guests have an unobstructed view of our guest.

If you miss out on tickets, we will be running a waitlist in case any tables become available nearer the time. If you are a two and you would be happy to share a table of four with another two, please let us know when adding yourself to the waitlist.
