A fundraising dinner for York Archaeological Trust

We are delighted to announce that on the evening of 30th September 2022, we will be hosting a gala dinner to mark the launch of Peter Addyman’s book commemorating half a century of archaeology undertaken by the Trust with historian Michael Wood as our guest after-dinner speaker.

The evening encapsulates many different aspects of the Trust’s work over the last 50 years, starting with a warm welcome by our Viking hosts, and the chance to handle some of the artefacts we have unearthed before a four course black-tie dinner with musical accompaniment. Welcome drinks and wine are included with the meal and there will be a fully stocked bar.

We will also be hosting a raffle and a silent auction of “money can’t buy” experiences during the evening. Signed copies of Peter’s book will be available to purchase.

The dinner is a fundraising event for one of the Trust’s most innovative projects, Archaeology on Prescription.
