Limited accommodation is available at The Naval & Military Club and should be booked directly with Marta Wyszynska at the Club. Details can be viewed on its website. Various room types are available; as an indication, a double is £95 including continental breakfast, with a full English breakfast available for a small extra cost.
We have achieved a price equal to that of last year, despite rising food prices and increased VAT. The cost of the Dinner will thus again be £65.00 per person attending. As the dining room will accommodate up to 120 diners, we are again in the happy position that there will be no practical limit on the number of guests that members may bring to this prestigious event. But please book early as it is ‘first come, first served’. Should the limit be reached a waiting list will be established.
