The United Wards’ Club of the City of London was founded on 31 October 1877, and we shall commemorate this at our Founders’ Day Dinner, which this year will be held at Barber Surgeons’ Hall, Monkwell Square, Wood Street, London EC2, on Monday 30 October at 6:45 pm for 7:15.
After a reception featuring a fine English sparkling wine – Nutty Brut 2013 – we will be served a four course dinner with wines. Entertainment will be provided by well-known magician Bertie Pearce, and the guest speaker will be Lester Hillman, a noted historian and academic, who will give us a flavour of life at the time of the Club’s foundation. Later, in accordance with tradition, the minutes of the first meeting will be read as a prelude to a toast to our Founders. Afterwards there will be a stirrup cup, with carriages at 10:30 pm.
This is an occasion when, as well as members of this Club and their guests, we welcome members of the City’s Ward Clubs and we hope that many Clubs will be represented.
The ticket price is £118. Please book your party no later than Saturday 21 October 2017, either online or by downloading a booking form.
