Our Annual Dinner
We are returning to the historic RAF Club in Piccadilly for our Annual Dinner on Friday 15th March with Dinner served at 7.30 p.m. in the elegant Presidents’ Room. As usual we cordially invite former pupils of the Royal High School, their partners and guests to gather from 6.30 p.m. for pre-dinner drinks and relaxed conversation in the adjoining Victoria Bar. Dress for the Dinner is formal with black tie, Highland attire or lounge suit all acceptable.
We are delighted to announce that Royal High School former pupil David Robb will be our special Guest of Honour reflecting on his fifty years as a professional actor in conversation with Al Senter. David will recall some of the extraordinary people he has met in a career that has included blockbusters such as I, Claudius, Downton Abbey and Wolf Hall. Come along and enjoy a fascinating journey behind the scenes of some of Britain’s most memorable television dramas.
The price of the excellent three-course dinner is £49 and demand for tickets is bound to be high. Make sure that you don’t miss out by sending a cheque to Alex Prentice, made payable to ‘The Royal High School Club in London’, using the reply slip below. An early response would be much appreciated to help us with planning the event.
To reach the RAF Club, simply turn right out of Green Park Underground station (Jubilee, Piccadilly and Victoria lines) and walk down Piccadilly for four hundred metres in the direction of Hyde Park Corner. The RAF Club is at 128, Piccadilly just before the turning into Old Park Lane.
We very much look forward to seeing you again on Friday 15th March.
