HARROGATE Chamber of Trade and Commerce has opened bookings for its Annual Dinner, taking place this year on October 17.

Held at the Cedar Court Hotel, it will include a three-course meal, as well as entertainment from the Gilbert and Sullivan Festival.

The speakers for the evening will be from Harrogate beer and wine specialists Ake & Humphris, with a talk entitled Why Doesn’t Wine Taste Like Grapes?

Chamber President Stuart Pearson said: "The Annual Dinner is always a fantastic occasion and this year’s speakers and entertainment will be something a bit different for our guests to enjoy."

There will also be a raffle on the night to raise money for the annual Christmas Lights appeal in Harrogate.
