CHAMBER NEWS DON’T MISS THE 2017 ANNUAL DINNER IN 2016, for the first time, the Chamber hosted our very own “after dinner party”, with Craig Charles providing the sounds for a fabulous funk and soul DJ set. The evening was such a success that we are pleased to announce that Craig will be joining us again this year. Well known to Greater Manchester audiences, actor, comedian, author, poet, television presenter and DJ, Craig Charles is perhaps best known for playing Dave Lister in the science fiction sitcom Red Dwarf and Lloyd Mullaney in the soap opera Coronation Street and as a funk and soul DJ. He has hosted The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC radio since 2002, and performs DJ sets at numerous clubs and festivals, nationally and internationally. In September 2015, he left Coronation Street after ten years, to film new episodes of Red Dwarf. More details on the full programme for the Annual Dinner will be revealed soon, but the Annual Dinner will 8 include the announcement of the winner of the Greater Manchester Emerging Contemporary Arts Prize 2017. The Chamber launched this new prize in 2016, thanks to a public grant from the Arts Council England and sponsorship from the business community. The event will be a wholehearted celebration of the quality and diversity of Greater Manchester business, so make sure you don’t miss out on the largest business dinner in the North West’s business calendar. Visit www.gmchamber.co.uk/ events/1228 for more information and to book your place. We have a number of exciting sponsorship opportunities available at the event, for more details please email: chris.fletcher@gmchamber.co.uk Craig Charles at last year’s Annual Dinner
