Christmas Lunch - 9 December 2016

Once again this was a superb event and if you missed it you need to book for next year.  The Saddlers’ Hall, as usual, made us all welcome and there was a happy throng as the pre-lunch drinks were provided.  I always find that this event really heralds the real arrival of the Christmas season and the mood was excellent.

Prior to and during lunch a festive musical interlude was provided by four Students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Caspar Singh, Eleanor Neate, William Thomas (known to some as Vlad) and Nancy Holt. Speaking to the choristers prior to their performance, it was obvious that they were all looking forward to this event and were more than happy to join us and lead the musical items.  Please click on the link below to read the full report.
