Mark your place in New Covent Garden history

Two initiatives over the next few months will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Market’s relocation to Nine Elms and the Covent Garden Tenants Association (CGTA) is embracing the opportunity to raise funds for its selected charities.


Dinner and dance

Fundraising has always been a focus for CGTA – over the last 20 years, the generosity of the Market community has seen more than £750,000 raised for several worthy causes – chief among them being Anthony Nolan and Trinity Hospice. After an enforced break due to the pandemic, the association is organising a 50th Anniversary Dinner & Dance, which it hopes will raise record-breaking sums.

The CGTA is looking for suppliers and customers to celebrate another milestone for this great Market with them, by buying seats and tables at the dinner and sponsoring various elements of the dinner to create a night to remember for everyone.

Chair Gary Marshall said: “I could not be prouder of this Market and a big reason for that of course is all the wonderful people who are associated with it, in whatever capacity. For so many of us, New Covent Garden Market has been a huge part of our lives for many years and that is something worth celebrating.”

The Dinner & Dance will take place on Saturday, November 9th, at The Royal Lancaster London, on the edge of Hyde Park. It will begin with a champagne reception, feature lots of fun and entertainment and climax with a Mark your place in New Covent Garden history magnificent band and disco.

Tickets are £100 a head and tables of 10 and 12 are available. “We’re keen to make this as affordable as we can for everyone and we also want to make it a night to remember,” Gary said. “There are plenty of ways to sponsor and attach your name to this occasion – to sponsor or to buy a table, please contact Ann Harding (

The Garden Wall








If you’d like to create a permanent reminder of the relationship you, members of your family or friends, or your firm have with NCGM, then another charity project will give you the perfect opportunity. If you're a tenant, a customer, supplier or friend of the Market, this is your chance to show how much this place has meant to you, your business and your life.

"The Garden Wall” - with classy black zinc plaques with silver lettering available in two sizes, will be a combination of celebration and commemoration of people’s time at the Market and the incredible service that so many people and firms have given to Covent Gardens old and New. The aim is to unveil the wall in November, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the relocation to Nine Elms – November 11th.
