Event Details

Please join us on Saturday 28th October 2017, at New Street Grill in the City of London, to celebrate the founding of the Society on 25th October 1888 with a fabulous three course meal and wine.

This will be the third incarnation of the annual Founders’ Dinner. The first dinner was held in 2015 and was a great success, building upon the 125th anniversary dinner in 2013.

As a new initiative, we will be holding the Annual General Meeting of the Association in London this year. The meeting will take place before the Founders' Dinner at the same venue. Click here for all details of the AGM.
