Our Dean and President, Professor Frank Bournois, and our UK Dean, Professor Kamran Razmdoost, invite you to join them for the ESCP London Campus Annual Student Gala on 3rd March 2023.

Our Annual Student Gala is the perfect time to celebrate the innovative spirit embedded in ESCP’s genes, and this is the biggest celebration of the London Campus social calendar!

A pioneer for the past 200 years, ESCP can be proud of a large number of innovations successfully adopted all around the world. It remains the only pan-European school, with six campuses in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw.

The Location

This year’s event will be hosted at one of London’s most iconic places. Found between Covent Garden and Holborn stations in the West End of London, you will be invited to join the magnificence of De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, one of London’s leading venues in the heart of London. The venue’s centrepiece is The Grand Hall, a remarkable space with beautiful ornate high ceilings, detailed wood panelling and soaring chandeliers.

The Night

After dropping off your coat at the complimentary cloakroom, your evening will begin at 6:30pm with a Champagne reception at the Balmoral Suite.

The call to dinner will be made at 8pm, gathering everyone in the historic and ornate Grand Hall for the evening’s meal. You will be seated with your friends at tables of 10 decorated with Candelabra and Mirror Centrepieces and served a gastronomic three-course meal prepared by the Executive Chef. Wine carefully selected by a sommelier will accompany your meal, and dinner will end with a selection of petit fours and coffee.

You will also be treated to surprise performances from guest entertainers and find out the result of the Student Society of the Year Award and Best Consultancy Project.

The night will continue until late on the dance floor, with music provided by signed Universal Music label artist DJ and ESCP Alumnus (2017) Harold Van Lennep.

Throughout the night, we will have a team of professional photographers taking beautiful portraits and capturing the event’s magic. All photos will be free for you to use as you wish.
