Stephen Mulhern to host BDCI Annual Festival Dinner

Stephen Mulhern, presenter of ITV2 series Britain’s Got More Talent, is to host this year’s BDCI Annual Festival Dinner. 

The dinner, which will take place in The Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Friday 21 October, is the highlight of the BDCI’s fundraising activity, providing a great opportunity for meat industry colleagues to enjoy a fun evening out while raising funds to support their own industry charity.

This year’s festival chairman Steve Crosby, chairman of Riverway Foods, said: “The Festival Dinner is a great night out, but ultimately it is all about raising funds for our industry charity. As festival chairman, it is my job to raise as much money as possible, so I will be calling on industry to provide support in the form of auction prizes and advertising in the Festival Dinner brochure.”

A former magician, Mulhern is well-known for presenting ITV game shows, including Catchphrase, Big Star’s Little Star and Pick Me! He also co-hosts the Sunday breakfast show on Heart Radio, alongside Emma Willis.

For those wanting to dance the night away, The Martin Bell All Star Band will continue the entertainment.

There will also be two auctions; a gala auction hosted by Stephen Mulhern and a silent auction running throughout the evening.

Tickets, which are priced at £160 (including automatic entry into a prize draw) are on sale now. To book tickets, donate an auction prize, or book advertising space in the brochure, call 01727 896094, email or complete the booking form on-line at:
