An Evening with Rick in Aid of The Poly
Join us for an evening of food and wine at the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society (also known as The Poly) in Falmouth on Saturday 12th March 2011. Rick will be hosting a one-off demonstration evening, from which all proceeds will be donated to the RCPS.
"Recently I was shown around the Polytechnic and was amazed at how beautiful it is - so full of history, such high ceilings and elegant windows, but a bit frayed around the edges. I'm very happy to help raise funds to restore it."
The evening will begin at 6pm (Poly doors open at 5.30pm) where you will be greeted with a glass of wine, then sit back and relax as you watch Rick cook three dishes from his latest book Far Eastern Odyssey, whilst sharing tips, techniques and anecdotes from his latest travels. Rick will also be signing books for guests after the event.
Henk Wiekens, Chairman, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society said “The RCPS is very honoured to have Rick Stein leading this fantastic fundraising opportunity for us. We’re especially grateful to Rick and his team for choosing to support the Society, as we rely on income from our membership and events to maintain the Poly building and it’s in need of a lot of work! To have an international celebrity on our stage is a great boost for everyone who has supported the Poly through difficult times and a great signal that we are on the way up.”
Tickets are £50 for RCPS member and £60 for non-members and are available from the Poly box office. All proceeds will be donated to the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society.
To purchase your ticket please call the Poly on 01326 319461 or call into the Poly Building between 10.00am and 4.00pm, Monday to Saturday at: 24 Church Street, Falmouth, Cornwall, TR11 3EG.
