London - Cambridge Society's Pall Mall Party, 2023
Monday 4 December 2023, 6.30pm to 10.30pm GMT
The Clubs of Pall Mall and St James’s are some of the glories of London, though open only to Club members and their guests. The Oxford and Cambridge Club is no exception, and so we are particularly pleased that at the end of our year we can again invite our Society members to a special evening hosted by Club and Society member, Andrew Shailer-Smith. For the evening of Monday 4th December, from 6.30pm to 10.30pm, we have the magnificent chandeliered Smoking Room (and no, you can’t!) and the format is, well, just meet, drink, chat, and end the Society’s year on a really happy note. What the Club elegantly terms “Gourmet Nibbles” will be yours, together with a voucher for the first drink of your choice (wine, beer, soft) followed by a cash bar. We have found from previous events that this is the best way to keep our ticket prices manageable for all, especially during these turbulent times, while allowing each of us to imbibe what and how much we need. We will be celebrating, meeting and making friends, and generally moving in a jolly way towards the end of the year with Society members of all ages and backgrounds who have two (at least) things in common: London living or working, and Cambridge University. What better way to bring people together!
Dress Code and Standards: The Club, like the others in St James’s, maintains the standards that its members approve, and so our host and Chairman will have their wrists slapped if the Club has to turn away gents without jacket and tie, or anyone in jeans, flip flops (in December?!) or similar garb. Ladies should dress with “commensurate formality”. Bags and luggage must be left at Reception, phones turned off or set to ‘silent’, and no photography is allowed anywhere in the Clubhouse other than in the Smoking Room. In this way the Clubs retain their unique charm, and this is something to be experienced. If you haven’t been there before, join us for this very special evening! And if you have, come and enjoy it all again!
Each Cambridge Society of London member attending may invite up to three named guests (NB all names will be left at Reception so do make sure they are accurate). We encourage you to invite your Cambridge alumni friends and contacts, though your guests may be non-Cantab.
Please note that bookings close on the evening of 30th November, though due to demand tickets may sell out sooner.
*Only members of the Cambridge Society of London (and their guests) may book tickets – if you are not currently a member and would like to become one, please visit the Society's website.
