Kenyan Lion King: An Exhibition of Impressionist Art

L’Escargot Greek Street, London W1

25th September 6-8pm

Enjoy Prosecco and delicious L’Escargot style canapés at the Opening Night Reception of a stunning exhibition from a new young artist who has truly found a style of his own. Some say his faces are a bit like Andy Warhol’s but we think they are better.

A Commemorative Date

St George’s Day 2019 dinner

Middle Temple Hall, London

Thursday 25th April

We're calling this one “Shamrocks & Dragons”, I know – that’s bonkers for St Georges, but it does allow you to recover from the official St Georges Day celebrations two days before! And this is a celebration of all things British – so very inclusive!  It is at the atmospheric Middle Temple Hall, where Shakespeare premiered Twelfth Night over 400 years ago. You will enjoy the Band of the Irish Guards at a regimental style occasion, with fine military marching, music and entertainment. 3 courses and drinks are all included for £200 a head. Tables are of 10, minimum booking is for 2 guests, so this is your chance to be the first to book your places.
