Our Annual Black Tie Event

Reserve your tickets now!

This will be the first formal black tie event of this type held by the South African Legion – United Kingdom and Europe since its inception.

It is time for you to get out your Mess Dress or Black-Tie evening wear for this superb occasion.

The event will be full of pleasant surprises, a few twists and a great atmosphere, especially for our partners and families that normally do not participate in our events during the year.

An ideal opportunity for everyone to meet up and have an enjoyable evening with a great three course meal, drinks, fun and dance.

This event will also present itself with new annual awards, and over £2,000.00 worth of prizes and items to raffle. This means that everyone should leave with something to remember the evening by.

Tickets are £60 per person.
