Let’s Make this a Night to Remember … BGT Star and Olympics Compere get set to wow guests at the AVEX GALA Charity Dinner!

by Anna Mason

The Automatic Vending Association (AVA) will be hosting the AVEX GALA Charity Dinner on Tuesday 12 September at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, and YOU are invited!

Tickets for the AVEX GALA Charity Dinner include a sumptuous three course dinner, live charity auction with luxury prizes, plus celebrity entertainment! Guests can also flex their gambling muscle on the night by playing dice and card games at a variety of casino inspired gaming tables.

No doubt providing many a side-splitting laugh on the night, is Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist, Drew Cameron. Drew is an accomplished entertainer, skilled impressionist and an award winning ‘stand-up chameleon’. Voted Best Variety 2013 Act by the NEA, and ‘best new comedian’ on ITV IN 2014, Drew’s amazing performance is not to be missed as he takes to the AVEX GALA Dinner stage for one night only this September.

Compering the evening, and thus ensuring continuous enjoyment for all guests on the night, is Made in Birmingham Radio host – Paul Burrell. Paul is the Stadium Announcer at the Emirates and Wembley Stadiums and had the privilege of being the official compere of the London 2012 football tournament!

Fun and laughter aside it is important to us as the trade body for the industry that we give back to communities in need, so we have come together for the AVEX Gala Charity dinner to support the commendable work of the following charities: EdUKaid, Gallagher Trust and The Point Foundation.

Jonathan Hart, Chief Executive of the AVA said of the AVEX GALA Charity Dinner: “We are honoured to be working with all of these worthy causes that are connected to the vending industry and we are dedicated to raising awareness and money towards the essential work that all of them do on this very special night.  Limited tickets are now available for this most exciting of evenings and we urge all those wishing to attend to book their places as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you all there on the night!”

Tickets are £109 (Plus VAT) per person, with one place free for a table of 10. If you wish to book your tickets for the AVEX GALA Charity Dinner then please contact Ann Goldsmith on for more details.
