The numbers for the SCS Annual Dinner 2018 are limited this year and will be on a first come first served basis.  Book your place now 

Dietary requirements: Please only include if you are vegetarian or if yBalloonsou have any food allergies.  The dinner menu contains meat and pork and if you do not wish to have these food items in your meal, please opt for the vegetarian choice.  Vegetarian meals will only be provided to those who have pre-ordered.


Complete with a Gallery to commemorate and showcase cosmetic innovation, brands, products, looks, popular culture and global events from the last 7 decades as well as a window to the future. 

The colour scheme for the dinner will be a mix of Platinum, Gold and Black and yes there will be birthday cake!!

Dinner Jackets, Ball Gowns, cocktail dresses and fancy dress from the historical decades will be very welcome but please wear whatever you are comfortable in and make sure you bring your dancing shoes, the DJ will want to fill the dancefloor.

The picture and video wall are back so if you have any photographs or graphics from the 1940s to the present day, especially old SCS events, past presidents, cosmetic or brand innovation from 1948-2018, please do send them to Gem.

The reception area will host the Gallery, along with some relaxing sofas and chilled music, for people more interested in chatting than dancing!!

The award for the SCS’ Laura Marshall Memorial Award for Innovation will be presented during the evening.

Last year we raised £2,000 for Look Good Feel Better, the global cosmetic industries charity who run free skincare and make up workshops for women, men and teenagers to help them cope with the visible effects of cancer treatment.

The guys and girls from Arthur Edward will be encouraging you to play heads and tails and buy raffle tickets with a chance to win a Magnum of Champagne to get to that £2,000 donation once again.

Tickets at a subsidised £90.00 are selling fast so please get in touch with Step Exhibitions on 01892 518877 or follow this link to book your place
