Annual Dinner – 8/12/22 RAF Club

8th December 2022, 7:00 pm


At this stage I am trying to gauge interest to ensure the event is viable




Lord Mark Sedwill and Lord Kim Darroch

Nothing planned?  Why don’t we all get together for a splendid dinner in excellent surroundings with brilliant company?  And with it being on a Thursday that means you can do some Christmas shopping the following day.

You will recall the our gathering last December had to be postponed until March. Even then the gremlins meant that our President was stuck on a delayed BA flight and couldn’t make it. However, I am simply delighted that we will have the 2 Lords present and in conversation with Bob Judson – and you the audience.

Covid-19 has allowed TLC to grow substantially and as you know, we now meet via Zoom most weeks to much larger audiences with fantastic speakers. It’s been a huge success.  As a result membership has grown considerably and we now see members and guests virtually from all points of the compass.  That’s what we will continue to do BUT we can also meet ‘live’ from time to time and I know you do also. My problem is finding a London host we can work with to cost effectively achieve this objective – so thoughts please

So, let’s all meet up at the RAF Club for a superb dinner in fabulous company and we can all put on our ‘best bib and tucker’. Cost to members and their guests will be an amazing £120 and to non-members £150. For this you will get a pre-dinner drink, a 4 course Christmas Dinner (why not?) and wine. There will be a pay bar for those who would like further refreshment.

Who is interested? I need to assess interest and numbers because as a precaution we have booked the Sovereigns’ Room and Churchill Bar so we have capacity for 120 plus if needs be. Clearly, if the pandemic was to force a cancellation then any monies will be refunded.

Therefore all I need at this stage is an indication of interest and number of places you would like to reserve. No money is necessary until EARLY OCTOBER when you will be contacted to confirm your reservation and make payment.  Due to the contractual arrangements with the RAF Club, no refunds will be possible after 18/11/22
