GPN with Lady C on Tuesday at the Savile Club

Join me at the Gay Professional Network on the 23rd January at the exclusive Savile Club in Mayfair.

We are a group of Gay Professionals who like their comfort, good wine and food, comfortable surrounding and great people.

Lady Colin CampbellLady Colin Campbell has graciously accepted to be our guest of honour on this occasion.

The Savile Club was established in 1868 by a group of the most distinguished writers and artists of the time. Its home is a fine 18th Century house in the heart of Mayfair, whose air of elegant exclusivity reflects the uniquely creative ambiance which is preserved in the Savile Club of today.

Dress code (for Members and Guests)
The Club has no formal dress code, other than a rather undefined rule of not offending other members, so although for example jeans and trainers are not permitted and a jacket is required (except in very hot weather when a notice will be posted on the board), a tie is not de rigueur.
It reflects of course on the price since we  pay for room hire and more expensive wines and include canapés.

The choice (this may change pending new menus in 2018) is

White Burgundy: Macon-Uchizy and Bordeaux: Chateau Beauregard-Ducourt.


 Selection of Crostini:
            Oven dried cherry tomatoes and feta cheese, mustard dressing
            Parma Ham and horseradish cream
            Smoked Salmon, crème fraiche and dill
            Marinated artichoke hearts with olive pesto
                       Tiger Prawns on a stick with dipping sauce
                       Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil kebab
                       Chicken Satay
                       Honey & Mustard Sausages
                       Smoked Haddock Welsh Rarebit
                       Salmon Fishcakes, Lemon Mayonnaise
                       Anchovy Sticks and remoulade sauce

The price is £49.50 and includes a small fee towards the running of GPN.
GPN is a non for profit membership organisation operating since 2010. The excess from the membership fees after food, drinks and room hire pays for the website, promotion, organising, stationary including the badges, transport & banners, guests and guest speakers. 

Members who have already paid for the year, there is no further charges except that we now will meet bimonthly and up to five times a year.

By hiring private rooms, we can talk and make the occasional presentation without the noise associated with cheaper venues. 

As we did over the last few years, drinks will be included, (up  to a point though!).

I am also delighted to extend another exclusive invitation to the Whitefriars Club, of which I am the Honorary Secretary, at the Palace of Westminster to Celebrate its 150th Anniversary on Thursday 22nd February. Although not exclusively Gay, I can assure you of a few LGBT tables... details and RSVP:
