Anne Frank Trust UK Gala Dinner 12 June

12 June 2019 was the 90th anniversary of Anne Frank’s birth.

We marked the occasion with two prestigious events:

A lunchtime reception at Speaker’s House, the Palace of Westminster, hosted by a number of our young Anne Frank Ambassadors. Speakers included James Brokenshire, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, our Chief Executive, Tim Robertson and presentations were made by three Anne Frank Ambassadors from Batley in Yorkshire.

Later that day we hosted a gala dinner at the Grand Connaught Rooms where guests enjoyed speeches by the actor and director Kenneth Branagh and by Eva Schloss.

Entertainment was provided by blues singer Elkie Brooks.
