We are hosting a gala dinner tonight to mark Forest’s 40th anniversary.

I think we can call it a gala dinner. I’ve read several definitions of the word ‘gala’ but it seems to mean a big party with dinner and entertainment and sometimes dancing and an auction.

OK, there won’t be dancing or an auction but we do have live music, guest speakers, a stand-up comedian and a DJ.

We also have 180 confirmed guests including MPs, MEPs, journalists and friends of Forest.

The event - at Boisdale of Canary Wharf - starts at 6.15pm but I shall be there mid afternoon with a small team to set things up.

If everything goes exactly to plan it will be a small miracle (I’m keeping my eye on the weather too) but we’re looking forward to it.

Full report tomorrow (or the day after if I’m too tired to write it.)
