The inaugural King’s High School Charitable Trust black tie dinner will be staged in the Dunedin Town Hall on Saturday, 17th November and seats are selling fast!

Open to all old boys, their wives, girlfriends and partners; all supporters of the school; current and former parents and staff, the dinner will be a celebration of King’s – acknowledging its history, applauding its high-profile present and looking forward in anticipation of a stellar future.

Guest speakers will be Glen Denham (1977-1982: Head Boy in 1981 and 1982) who was a brilliant sportsman and long-time captain of the New Zealand men’s basketball team, and visionary business leader Wayne Wright (1959-1962), whose story is one of extraordinary twists and turns.

Internationally acclaimed opera singer Chris Fennessy (1984-1988: Head Boy 1988) will perform both solo and alongside New Zealand’s top scholar in drama for 2017, Max Beal (2013-2017).

We will also be entertained by a number of the school’s musical and cultural groups.

Tickets are priced at $120 with a discount for tables of 10 at $1,100. Drinks will be served upon arrival and there will be allocation of wine and beer on each table, after which a cash bar will operate.

This will be a brilliant night of salutation and the beginning of a new tradition at our old school. The night will also double as a mini-reunion, so it’s an ideal time to gather up former school mates and get them along.

Bookings are being taken now with almost 200 seats having been reserved to date.
