Who would’ve known!


BBC broadcaster and journalist Vanessa Feltz dubbed “officially the hardest working woman in broadcasting” by the Guardian entertained the St Albans Business Community at the sell-out St George’s Day Lunch last Friday held at Sopwell House Hotel.


The controversial TV and radio presenter had the audience howling with laugher as she gave anecdotes and stories about her career and all the people she has worked with over many years in showbiz, guests laughed as she made reference to aspirational St Albans as an ex Haberdashers pupil and how pleased she was to be here “Who would’ve known this would be so much fun” she said.


350 guests enjoyed a patriotic afternoon of networking, drinking and making new business contacts whilst raising funds for two very important charities. A charity very close to our hearts Guide Dogs for the Blind St Albans and Bereavement Matters (St Albans Bereavement Network)


During the event sponsors and VIP met some guide dog puppies who made a special guest appearance much to the amusement of Dennis our Presidents German Shepherd guide dog.


The Maltings Shopping Centre sponsored the event, centre manager Phil Corrigan said “We are delighted to be supporting this wonderful event with St Albans Chamber of Commerce, it is fantastic to have raised over £16k for guide dogs for the blind, St Albans. Very happy to play a part in that”


Executive Director of the Chamber Lisa Bates-Wallis said we all had a thoroughly good time on Friday, well done to Sopwell House Hotel for impeccable service yet again.  I would like to thank all of our event sponsors  - their support makes these events possible. The event sold out in one hour this year so if you would like to join us attend in 2018 book early, it is the literally the hottest ticket in town!
