Grand Christmas Event Celebrating Grays of Westminster’s 30th Anniversary: The Institute of Directors, Pall Mall, London, Friday, 11th December

Grays of Westminster
Present a Grand Christmas Evening
In Celebration of their 30th Anniversary

The Institute of Directors, Pall Mall, London
Friday, 11th December
6.30 p.m. – 10.30 p.m.
Champagne Reception: 6.30 p.m.


Our annual Christmas events are always unique, and this year we will be celebrating the occasion of Grays of Westminster’s 30th Anniversary.

We would like you to join us in celebration of this significant moment in our history and to enjoy a champagne reception and superb Christmas dinner in the magnificent Regency Restaurant at the Institute of Directors (IoD) at 116 Pall Mall, London.

Grays of Westminster, the multi-award winning, exclusively Nikon dealer based in central London, services the photographic needs of over 47,000 clients, including A-list movie stars, rock stars and royalty as well as people from all walks of life and professions. It is the first camera shop in the world to be granted a Coat of Arms by Her Majesty’s College of Arms.


A Talk by Gray Levett

The meal will be followed by an illustrated talk by Gray Levett, the founder of Grays of Westminster, as he tells us about the company he started with only £100 to its name, and describes, with anecdotes and stories, his extraordinary life of over four decades in the photographic business. It is a career that has straddled music, photography and the movie world in both the UK and Hollywood, encompassing legendary figures, such as Kate Bush, Art Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, Stanley Kubrick, Lord Snowdon, David Bailey and Terence Donovan.


The IoD is a grand Grade I listed Regency building and its sweeping marble staircase and vast walls covered in 18th and 19th century canvases provides a spectacular backdrop for the evening; the period restaurant at the IoD is a most fitting venue for this elegant celebration.


Venue: Institute of Directors (IoD), 116 Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 5ED

Date: Friday, December 11th, 2015

Champagne Reception: 6.30 p.m. Introduction and Welcome
