Dinner : Past Presidents’ Dinner

Dress Code: Business

In addition to the full Congress programme all Past Presidents from every Section are invited to join this special dinner, that has now become an annual event thanks to the inspiration and drive of our incomparable duo Marga and Annie!  This is a wonderful dinner for all Past Presidents to embrace the ethos of the Amicale, celebrating long-standing friendships and creating new ones.  Please ensure you book your place for this dinner in addition to your main package.

This year the dinner will be held at Innholders’ Hall – a unique and inspiring venue, the ancient Livery Hall for the Worshipful Company of Innholders.  The history of the Company dates back to the 1300s, the current Hall built 350 years ago following the Great Fire of London in 1666.  The Royal Charter, sealed by King Henry VIII in 1514 can still be seen in the Hall today.  Our menu will be created by Chef Herbert Berger, who gained a Michelin star at three separate restaurants during his career.
