Conference Dinner

Tickets are now available for the conference dinner which will be held on Friday September 6th at 116 Pall Mall, a spectacular Georgian building located in the exclusive St James district of London.

Commissioned by George IV and designed by architect John Nash, the building opened in 1828 as the United Service Club.This Grade I listed building is brimming with opulent interiors and is a popular location for filming television and feature films such as: Downton Abbey, Gandhi, The Dark Knight and Foyle’s War.The Grand Staircase & Gallery is particularly impressive with its sweeping double staircase and 15ft Regency chandelier given by George IV in the early 19th century to the USC to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo.

Seats are limited, and sold on a first come first served basis, so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. As the main social event during the conference, we are very excited about dining in the Burton Room at 116 Pall Mall and look forward to enjoying a delicious meal with you in this exquisite period setting
