September 25 – Society Evening and AGM at The Savile Club

The Society meeting and AGM has been rescheduled from the first week of October, and relocated to new premises which are, to quote our Chairman, “quite simply magnificent and utterly appropriate to host our Society”. The Savile Club is in the heart of the West End at 69 Brook Street, W1K 4ER, in an 18th-century building with a rich history. You can see the Drawing Room and other pictures here. The evening starts at 6pm and will be a chance for new members, regular attenders, and those who haven’t been for a while, to have a jolly good mingle. Our events impresario Paul Kent will tell us about the history of our new home, and there will be an entertainment themed on that other Club well known to PGW aficionados – the Drones. This is an occasion for celebration, so please join us. Please note – there is a modest dress code. No jeans or trainers, and gentlemen are required to wear a jacket.
