This year's annual CA Dinner will take place on 7 September and, for the first time, will include an awards ceremony for the winners of the ICAS 35 CAs under 35 competition.

The event will be held at Gibson Hall in London and the ticket price includes a welcome reception, a three-course meal, complimentary drinks and an evening of entertainment, most notably from comedian Jo Brand.

Guests will also have the opportunity on the night to donate to the ICAS Foundation.

Sophisticated surroundings

Gibson Hall is a stunning historic venue located in the centre of London.

Formerly a banking hall, it boasts a grand main hall and secondary garden room in addition to a secluded outdoor courtyard and garden space, a rarity in the heart of the City.

The CA Dinner & Awards will kick off in the garden and garden room with a drinks reception welcoming you to the event and offering a chance to mix with other CAs and esteemed guests.

This is the perfect opportunity to connect with eminent business leaders across a range of industries and broaden your professional network.

Afterward, attendees will be invited to take their seats in the Main Hall as the 35 CAs under 35 and One Young CA awards ceremony begins.

A three-course meal will follow with a menu prepared by award-winning caterers Kudos.

Keeping you entertained

ICAS Chief Executive Anton Colella will be hosting the evening, joined by ICAS President Ken McHattie.

Comedian and TV personality Jo Brand will be the after-dinner speaker.

Long established as one of the UK’s best female comics, Jo has appeared on numerous TV comedy panel shows alongside an illustrious stand-up career and is the writer and star of BAFTA award-winning 'Getting On'.

The moment we've all been waiting for

The One Young CA awards will showcase the most outstanding and inspiring young CAs who are making an impact within the worlds of business, finance and not-for-profit.
