Event description

Description

PLEASE NOTE: REGARDING TO CONCERNS OVER COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Our Event Management Contingency Plan:

Cardiff & District Law Society has agreed terms with the venue that, should it be advised, we will move the date of this event.

All ticket purchases and sponsorship will be transferred to the new date. In the event that you cannot attend the function, our cancellation rights will be renewed, from the 15th May 2020 until two weeks prior to the event. If the new date falls within those two weeks, we would give all ticket holders 5 working days to make a full refund on pre-booked tickets.



The Cardiff & District Law Society Annual Dinner 2020 will return to the incredible 'Trading Floor' Ballroom at the Exchange Hotel.

We will return to the stunning Exchange Hotel in Cardiff Bay for this year's dinner (the venue formerly known as the Coal Exchange Building). Our dinner will take place in the exquisitely renovated Coal Exchange trading floor - a room that's like no other in the capital city of Wales.

We invite our members, those working in and with legal brands in and around Cardiff, affiliated industries and students to join us on Friday 15th May 2020 for a night filled with entertainment, heritage and celebration of our successful, sustainable, innovative and internationally regarded legal community.

Our 2019 event was the largest we've ever hosted, and the largest the venue has ever hosted so we're releasing tickets early to avoid disappointment. As ever, our Sparkling Reception will be followed by a stunning three-course meal with wine, entertainment, a welcome from our President (Steve Roberts, Rchard Nelson LLP) and the ability to mingle with colleagues old and current, your peers, the judiciary, representatives from the Law Society, the Law Gazette, CILEx, the Bar and other regional law societies. We will also announce the winners of the CDLS Legal Awards 2020!

CONFIRMED: Our Guest Speaker

We are delighted to announce that Will Millard, writer, BBC presenter, public speaker, and expedition leader, will jon us on the night.

Born and brought up in the Fens, Will presents remote Anthropology and Adventure series for BBC Two, and series on Rivers, Urban Exploration, and History for BBC Wales. In 2016 he won the BAFTA Cymru Award for Best Presenter and in 2019 his series ‘My Year with the Tribe’ won the Realscreen award for Travel and Exploration. His series have also received nominations for Best Series and Best Presenter in the Grierson, Broadcast, Bannf, Kendal, and the Televisual Bulldog Awards.

“Millard is a natural presenter…Even when faced with aggression from tribes people who have no idea who this sunburnt stranger is he wins them – and us – over with his warmth. This man is one to watch” – Radio Times
