An Evening with… Wayne Hemingway MBE

Sunday 07 Oct 2018 - Arrive at 7pm, Tickets £40

Wayne Hemingway, fashion designer and co-founder of Red or Dead and HemingwayDesign, will be hosting an exclusive fundraising evening for just 80 guests.

Meet the entrepreneur who started his fashion career by selling items at Camden Market from his own wardrobe and that of his wife Gerardine and launched it into a successful fashion label that received global acclaim and had 21 consecutive catwalk seasons at London Fashion Week.

Hear Wayne talk about how he transitioned from fashion designer into a social and cultural designer, specialising in housing regeneration, interior and workspace design, as well as cultural events. Over the past 35 years HemingwayDesign has collaborated with the likes of Sainsbury's, John Lewis, Coca-Cola, The National Trust, B&Q, Argent, eBay, Southbank Centre and the Royal Mail as well as heading up the £18m re-imagining of Dreamland in Margate.

All proceeds from this special fundraising evening will contribute to our Studio Campaign, a new multi-purpose facility to support emerging talent across the region, develop a diversified arts and contemporary music programme, a youth arts and theatre programme and provide an accessible hub, which community groups can utilise.

  • The evening will begin with your entrance through the bronze double doors at the top of the Guildhall’s grand stairway to a drinks reception.
  • An enthralling talk and Q&A session with Wayne.
  • A 2 course hot fork buffet served in the glorious Zodiac Gallery.
  • Cash bar.

Dress code: Smart. No jeans, shorts or trainers.
