Annual Dinner 20th January 2014

Dear Members,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the annual dinner of the Cambridge Society will be held on the evening of Monday 20th January 2014 from 19hrs.

We are delighted to welcome Dr. John Leigh, fellow of Fitzwilliam College and an expert in Eighteenth-century French literature - principally Beaumarchais and Voltaire - as our guest speaker. Dr. Leigh has been a University Lecturer and Fellow of Fitzwilliam since 1995. His publications include books on Voltaire and on the Enlightenment, as well as a lexicon of the language of football commentators. He is also an indispensable part of a pub quiz team, just as long as the questions are on English parish churches, nineteenth-century operas or Sheffield Wednesday. His next book, 'Touché: The duellist in the literary imagination' is forthcoming.

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 for members & their partners is €60/head, we would like to offer two special concessions. Firstly a special price for members under 30 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). The price for non-member Cantabrigians guests is €70.

Please confirm your attendance before Monday 13.01.2014 and make your payment to the Cambridge Society bank account (BE 84 3770 0232 0559 in the name of Vierlich-Jürcke) mentioning "Annual Dinner 2014". Your participation is confirmed once your payment has been received. (Please note, that no refunds for cancellations can be made after Tuesday 14.01.2014)

Dress is black tie or smart evening dress.

On behalf of all the Committee,

Yours sincerely,

Rupert Carter
