The evening will include a 3 course meal including wine on the table, a chat show style interview and audience Q and A with Frank plus fundraising on behalf of the Dorset Children's Foundation.
The Evening will commence at 19:30 with a welcome drink in the function room foyer, after which guests will move into Phoxtrott Ballroom for a sumptious 3 course meal. Between courses we will be fundraising for The Dorset Children's Foundation with the opportunity to win some simply amazing prizes.

The dress code for this event is lounge suit.
Frank Bruno is one of the most popular sportsmen in the country, a boxing legend and a larger than life character. Following a short but very successful amateur career, Frank became a professional boxer in 1982 starting with 21 consecutive wins by knockout. Competing in very much a golden era for heavyweight boxing, through his career Frank fought legends such as Joe Bugner, Tim Witherspoon, James "Bonecrusher" Smith, Lennox Lewis and most famously, in Las Vegas against Mike Tyson - capturing the hearts of the British nation. sweet 16 court wears
Following three brave but ultimately unsuccessful attempts at a world title, Frank's dream was finally realised in 1994 at Wembley Stadium against reigning WBC title holder American Oliver McCall - the people's champion finally became a World Champion!
Away from Boxing, Frank's enduring popularity has enabled him to work very successfully in Panto, TV, advertising and on the sporting speaker circuit. In 2003, Frank was diagnozed with Bipolar disorder, his well documented illness putting Frank in the public eye and he has used this media attention to help with the stigma attached to mental health issues. Frank supports many charities for mental health on an ongoing basis.
Frank is the father of 4 children and was awarded the MBE in 1990.
