Brooks’s Club and the Society Of Dilettanti
Monday 30 September

This is a joint event with alumni from other schools

The history of London would be incomplete without mentioning its traditional gentlemen’s clubs. Our alumni have been granted rare access to these ancient, private and fascinating institutions. Brooks’s, founded in 1764, and the Society of Dilettanti founded in 1732, maintain the best of the traditions.

Charles Sebag-Montefiore, senior member of the Society of Dilettanti and author, will give a review of the Society's colourful history at Brooks’s, which has now become its home and repository of its famous art collection of members’ portraits. These include several by Joshua Reynolds, the founder of the Royal Academy. This is a rare opportunity to see Brooks’s and learn more about the Grand Tours made by Society members to Italy and Greece in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Places are limited and all bookings need to be made in advance. Please note the dress code is smart and men must wear jackets and ties - no jeans or sports wear.
