Booze, boxing and the Barings Bank breaker!

Get set for a night of ringside entertainment at the Midland Hotel as they prepare to host their next Charity Boxing Gala Dinner.

Published on February 16th 2007.


Booze, boxing and the Barings Bank breaker!

The gloves are off as the Midland Hotel prepares for a fantastic evening of charity pro-boxing on Friday 23rd February, with special guest for the evening, the infamous rogue trader, Nick Leeson.

The collapse of Barings Bank (personal bank to HM The Queen) in 1995 and Nick Leeson's role in it is one of the most spectacular debacles in modern financial history. No wonder Nick is one of the UK’s most sought-after speakers. Curiosity, intrigue and sympathy have been the various reactions to this man's incredible life story.

Corporate hospitality doesn’t come much better than this. Commencing with a champagne reception and four-course dinner, the entertainment will kick off, followed by four fiercely contested bouts of professional boxing present by The Anglo-American Sporting Club.

Following the boxing there will be top quality entertainment from a surprise cabaret act and some great comedy and musical performances. There will also be a charity auction and a raffle, with £1000 up for grabs.

This promises to be an excellent night of boxing, dining and entertainment, and most certainly a night out with a difference!

A ticket to this event costs £100 + VAT per person, and tables seat ten guests.

For ticket information please contact the Ticket Office on 0161 301 3799 or email info@angloamericansportingclub.com
