The reception will be hosted within a private viewing of an art exhibition by Arabella Dorman called ‘Before the Dawn‘: An Artist’s Journey through Afghanistan. Arabella was officially embedded within the British armed forces in Afghanistan and her paintings are drawn from those first-hand experiences along with her personal travels in the region.
General Sir Nick Parker will talk about his time in Afghanistan and guests will also have the opportunity to hear from special guest, the current British ambassador to Afghanistan, Sir Richard Stagg, as well as Mr Mirwais Alizai, a 32-year-old Afghan entrepreneur who was born in Helmand province and is sponsoring the exhibition.
Guests will be treated to drinks and canapés.The exhibition runs from 5th to 15th November and is open daily from 10am. 5% of all painting sales will go to Walking With The Wounded.
