Keynotes Auction Lunch
Marcliffe Hotel and Spa. Sunday, 12.30 pm, November 6th 2016.
Please click here to receive your invitation to the Keynotes Auction Lunch and a booking form.

We will be back in the Marcliffe once more and are delighted that Moira Docherty will be providing the entertainment this year, accompanied by Harry Williamson. You can book a single ticket if you wish -- the tables are always made up of friendly folk who are happy to recognise familiar faces or make new friends.

If you wish to bring along a group of family and friends well, the more the merrier! Monies raised at the lunch provide vital core funding for NESMS. While lesson fees cover tutor and direct administration costs, funds raised from the lunch pay for costs such as utilities and insurance. Please support this wonderful and worthy event.
