Bishop Graham has been the patron of OPEN Youth Trust (OPEN) since it was founded in 2005, and the youth charity wanted to celebrate the incredible way in which he has touched so many lives by sending him and Julie off to their retirement in Cornwall with what could be, with your support, the biggest banquet ever held in the city centre.

It is OPEN's way of thanking him for his inspirational leadership and unwavering support for their work with young people and would be delighted if the local business community were able to join them for an evening of fine dining with music, song, dance and poetry from their young people, including a performance by members of the Norfolk County Youth Orchestra, who have now taken up full residence at OPEN.

Lady Anwen Hurt will pay a personal tribute to Bishop Graham and Nina Nannar, ITV’s arts correspondent and Norwich resident, will be chatting with him about his memories and time in the Diocese of Norwich.

The banquet, will be a delightful, historic and emotional occasion, with surprises and cameos from national treasures and the Bishop is pleased that this fundraising evening will be his parting legacy to the charity.

The date coincides with Burns Night and Chef Andrew Baker has developed a menu that pays homage to the occasion so, if you’re a wee bit Scottish in any way, there is even more reason to come!

We do hope you can join us.
