Gourmet Handover Dinner

July 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm

As has become customary in recent years, one of the first events in a Presidential calendar is the Gourmet Handover Dinner. A culinary spectacle where our catering staff really show off their skills, treating guests to eight courses of first class food!
The convivial dinner also acts as one final thank you to our outgoing President, Sir David Maddison, whilst welcoming Mr David Roscoe, as his programme begins to get into full swing.
Due to the nature of this significant menu, attendance is limited to just 40
