The Society Update
The Society builds on the strong common values of Britain and Australia through our diplomatic links and by bringing Australians and Britons together at exclusive and unusual events.
We certainly organised a scintillating array of events this year including a trip with Randolph Churchill to his family's home, visits to Royal Windsor, functions in the Reform Club, receptions for 2 British High Commissioners, a genteel country opera experience and an evening of hilarious rugby tales. We also raffled tickets to the Wimbledon championship and the Ashes and a member secured a great bargain on business class tickets to Australia with Etihad in our raffle.
On November 4th is a chance to hear from and meet with Baron Marland, the renowned businessman and front bench politician who now chairs the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council. Lord Marland has a wide range of interests and the talk is bound to be a fascinating one. This event is presented in conjunction with the London Business School.
We aim to send out a newsletter to members and subscribers every month or so but please CHECK THE EVENTS PAGE for upcoming events as they are being added all of the time.
The calendar for next year is starting to come together and we have some very special occasions indeed planned - more details to come!
