Monday 23 April 2007

Corporate Members' Evening
Imperial War Museum North
(1930 'til late)

Join us at the new Imperial War Museum North on the waterfront at the stylish Salford Quays. This stricking, aluminium-clad structure is the only building in the UK to be designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind. The setting for the corporate-sponsored evening will feature iconic wartime objects, including a Harrier jet, artillery pieces and, in addition, hands-on exhibits. Drinks and a buffet dinner will be served and entertainment will have a nostalgic feel, with 1940's swing music followed by 'dancing through the decades'.

Tuesday 24 April 2007
