Hannah Gibson, BSO Senior Development Officer

On behalf of us all at the BSO, we cannot thank Tony Beales and his wonderful team enough for their fantastic support in organising our Black Tie Gala Evening at The Italian Villa. It is rare to work with a team who is prepared to support on each and every aspect of the event - however big or small. The team at Beales achieved this proudly. The evening will be remembered as a truly memorable and special experience for our most valued supporters, special guests and musicians.
