60th Annual Dinner

The Halifax Insurance Institute 60th Annual Dinner Celebration will now be taking place at The Holiday Inn - Brighouse in 2021, new date TBC

Our headline after Dinner speaker will be Paul Boardman.

Paul is the son of comic legend Stan Boardman, Paul has inherited his father’s natural talent for comedy. He retains the cheeky scouse approach, combining observational humour, original jokes and audience interaction, without ever risking offence and ensuring the material is relevant for today.

He is a regular on the 'Jongleurs' comedy circuit, and the corporate scene working for the top brand clients in the country such as Sony, Manchester United and American Airlines. He is equally at home on the Sporting Dinner circuit building a fine reputation by working with all the big names, including Sir Geoff Hurst, Sir Geoffrey Boycott, Paul Merson and many others.

In addition, Paul was recently asked to be top table speaker at the prestigious 'Annual Variety Club Stag Dinner' at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London hosted by Jimmy Tarbuck and Bruce Forsyth, and was very well received indeed.

He is versatile and can adapt to all audiences and his favourite experience to date was performing to US and British troops in war-torn Bosnia as part of a 10 date comedy tour.

Paul has plenty of television experience performing on 'Friday Night Live' and also working as a free-lance presenter on Sky Sports for 8 years. He hosted 'Goals on Sunday' with Chris Kamara for an entire season, and also 'Football First' Sky Sports' Saturday night equivalent of' 'Match of the Day'.

Our Special Guests for the evening will be representatives from the Naomi Cheri Gough Foundation.

The President's chosen charity for this year is the Naomi Cheri Gough Foundation. The NCGF is a registered charity founded in 2016 in memory of Naomi Gough who tragically lost her life due to a road traffic accident. The charity provides education in schools and businesses on the consequences of irresponsible driving as well as supporting families both financially and emotionally following their loss of a loved one due to a road traffic accident on the roads of West Yorkshire.

The evening will be rounded off with our customary disco.
