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.

The Battle of Arnhem 1944 Speaker Lunch

Organiser:
Stuart Anderson

We invite you to join us for another interesting lunch that will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem.

Several club members will talk of the Battle from different perspectives, but most important we will be joined by an ex Para and Colonel of the Parachute Regiment, who as our guest, will speak about the Paras who fought at Arnhem in 1944.

This is likely to be a popular lunch especially for the history buffs among us, so it essential you book in early to secure your place at what will be a fascinating talk. There will be ample time for questions too.

The ex para who is coming, is Kevin Pellatt’s guest, the former Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, Giles Orpen-Smellie.
