OWING TO CONCERNS OVER CORONAVIRUS THE DECISION HAS BEEN MADE TO CANCEL THE ANNUAL DINNER ON 28 MARCH 2020.
THE AGM WILL ALSO BE MOVED TO 29 APRIL 2020 IN BURY ST EDMUNDS TO TIE WITH THE SUPPER ALREADY PLANNED.
Simon Dougherty writes: The Society’s Annual Dinner will be held at the Royal Air Force Club, 128 Piccadilly, London W1J 7PY on Saturday 28 March 2020 at 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Prior to the dinner, the Society will hold its AGM at 6.15pm. While it is being held, Partners and guests will be able to relax in the ground floor Churchill Bar which will be open from 6.00pm. Pre-dinner drinks will be served in the Churchill Bar from 7 o’clock, with dinner being served in the first floor Queen’s Room at 7.30pm. Dress is Black Tie or equivalent. After dinner, Christina Johnston (V01-06), the well-known coloratura soprano, will give a short performance.
The cost of the dinner is £58 per head including half a bottle of wine. We are subsidising younger OFs – the first 20 OFs aged under 30 years on 28 March 2020, to apply and pay for places, will be charged only £29 – this is a remarkable offer! A vegetarian option may be requested at the time of application. We have arranged a bar extension in the Churchill Bar up to midnight, so there will be plenty of time to do this after the dinner.
A letter giving full details is here and an application form is here. Tables will be arranged to seat 10, so you can reserve a table for your group or apply for individual tickets – just fill in the form as appropriate. The closure date for applications is noon on Friday 20 March 2020. Cancellation without financial penalty may be made until the same date. Transport from Framlingham College to the RAF Club and return has been arranged – full details of how to book this are in the linked letter.
Please book early to make sure you have a seat! I look forward to seeing you on the night. Should you have any questions, please contact me, or Kate Jackson OF Coordinator as detailed in the attached letter.
