This dinner is hosted by Aneka, one of TableCrowd's wonderful host and she'll be looking after you on the night.
Aneka started her career as a professional dancer but due to becoming ill with meningitis she hung up her tutu and discovered her love of turning nothing into something - entering the life of a entrepreneur and since then has not looked back. Setting up a Lifestyle Management company that has thrown celebrity events that has received international press coverage to providing business development for clients in the entertainment industry Aneka is a natural host!
