The pre-Christmas Club dinner has become a firm fixture in the London Chapter's annual calendar. Our first dinner was at the Reform Club in 2005, with Desmond Guinness as our guest speaker. Dinners have been held each year since then, each time at a different club. This year we are breaking with tradition and returning to the Reform – one of London’s greatest club buildings.
The Reform Club was founded in 1836, designed by Sir Charles Barry, who had completed the neighbouring Travellers Club (1829-32). The building – said to be based on the Farnese Palace in Rome – is palatial in scale, with its impressive central atrium. We will be dining in the library on the first floor – considered to be the finest room in the Club.
Each year we have a distinguished speaker and this year will be no exception. Our speaker John Goodall is an English historian, author, and Architectural Editor of Country Life magazine.
Dinner (black tie) will be at 7.00pm for 7.30 pm with carriages from 10.30pm. Tickets for the evening cost per person £99 member, £75 YIG, and £109 non-member. The price will include a three-course dinner with coffee, wine and port afterwards. Guests are welcome, but priority will be given to members.
If you would like to sit near another member then please state this when purchasing your ticket and we will try to arrange the seating plan accordingly, but cannot guarantee being able to meet everyone's requirements.
As usual numbers are limited - and so places may well be at a premium. You are therefore recommended to apply early.
