Christmas Lunch at The Bloomsbury Hotel
Saturday 30 November 2019, 12noon-4pm
The Bloomsbury Hotel, 16-22 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3NN
Taking place once more at the Bloomsbury Hotel, Great Russell Street – formerly the YWCA, designed by Lutyens in 1930 – the lunch will give you a chance to explore the building, including the former Queen Mary’s Hall, and (subject to availability) the Library and Chapel.
We are also pleased to announce that our guest speaker this year will be Sarah Dickinson, Chair of the Surrey Gardens Trust, who will be talking about the Trust and its recent project to digitise Gertrude Jekyll’s drawings for Surrey from the University of California, Berkeley’s Reef Point Collection.
The lunch will also feature an audio-visual review of the year’s visits, a pictorial quiz – to recognise Lutyens works – with prizes and a raffle offering more great prizes. Providing outstanding food and wine at a top venue, this lunch is not to be missed.
The cost of the full three-course luncheon, including half a bottle of wine, is £55. It’s advisable to book early for this popular event.
