About the Annual Dinner

The semi-formal Annual Dinner has been held annually since 1972 and we invite a Guest of Honour to deliver an after-dinner speech. The dinner takes place immediately following our AGM, and previous speakers include Priscilla and Michael Tolkien, Tom Shippey, Ted Nasmith, Alan Lee and John Garth.

This year’s speaker is yet to be confirmed, but the dinner itself will take place at 18:30 on Saturday 22nd April at the Warwick Arms Hotel. Look out for news on our Guest of Honour, but in the meantime you can book the meal using the form below.

The dinner costs £27.95 per person.

For all booking queries, please contact the Bookings Officer, Francesca Barbini, directly.
