Club Events

Whether it’s a dining in or ball, a notable speaker or garden party, there’s a whole host of events organised by, and for, Strangers’ Club members – all being a great excuse for members to enjoy themselves with likeminded people.

The Societies and Groups at the Strangers’ Club organise a range of events, including external speakers, competitions and a variety of visits.

Strangers’ Club events provide an excellent way of making the most of membership. Enjoy time with other members, often with their partners. Come to the Summer Dinner Parties and Barbeques, Formal Dining-In and lunches such as the Beaujolais lunch.

Walk around Wine Tasting

Organiser:
Phil Gibb

The Club has been reviewing the current wine list and after much research and of course tasting, we are delighted to invite you come along and sample the new wines that will feature on the list. Fear not, some of the old Club favourites will still feature. We have additions from Alsace, Pomerol and an extremely good Port, not to mention a rather nice Madeira to boot!

Battle of Waterloo Lunch

Organiser:
Stuart Anderson

Come and join us to commemorate this special historical event.

The menu features two classic staples - Beef Wellington followed by Eton Mess rounded off with coffee.

This is an ideal event to invite your male friends to.

Given the fair weather, this lunch will be served on the Club Terrace.

What better way to spend a Friday afternoon?
