Four hundred guests are expected to the Swindon dinner including local dignitries and a number of well-known names associated with the area such as Melinda Messenger and Billie Piper.

Jazz sensation Jamie Cullum has been booked to provide the musical entertainment on the night.
 
Swindon-explorer David Hempleman-Adams OBE is said to be saddened, however, that he cannot attend due to his commitment to a current expedition on Mount Everest.
