Tuesday January 31th, Annual Dinner


It gives me great pleasure to announce that the annual dinner of the Cambridge Society will be held on the evening of Tuesday 31st January 2012 from 19hrs.

We are delighted to welcome HM Ambassador to Belgium, Jonathan Brenton as our guest and speaker. The Ambassador received his PhD from Girton and holds MA's in English literature from MIT and Bristol. Born in Uganda, with the Foreign Office he has been posted to London, Moscow and Berlin; he speaks fluent Russian.

The Ambassador is expected to touch upon themes that include his time at Cambridge, Samuel Beckett and to give a privileged view of the consternation surrounding the ongoing crises of credit and sovereign debts.

We are most pleased that the dinner will again be held at the "Club des Officers du Premier Regiment de Guides", (32, rue d'Arlon, Brussels 1000, close to Luxembourg Station).

We would like all members to feel they can attend (partners welcome, if space allows!). Accordingly, whilst the full ticket price is €60/head,  we would like to offer two special concessions. Firstly a special price for the Under 30's of €40/head and secondly the possibility of attendance subsidised by society funds if anyone should be in a position of genuine need (please apply accordingly).

Please reply to this e-mail to confirm your attendance to the Secretary, Caroline Laske, by 24.01.2012 and make your payment to the Cambridge Society bank account (776-5978534-36) mentioning "Annual Dinner 2012" before that date.  Your participation is confirmed once your payment has been received. (Please note, that no refunds for cancellations can be made after Tuesday 24.01.2012.)

Dress is black tie or smart evening dress.

On behalf of all the Committee,

Yours sincerely,

Rupert Carter
