This year this event is being held at the prestigious residence of the Rector, 170 Queen's Gate, part of Imperial College London.  The venue is a grade II listed Victorian town house designed by the pre-eminent Victorian architect Norman Shaw. Completed in 1889, it has now been restored to its former grandeur. 

Guests will be able to explore the imposing Council Room with its portraits of previous Rectors, take a glass of fizz in the wonderful South facing Solar Room with its exotic paintings and wander into the peaceful walled Courtyard Garden. completed in 1889 and has been restored to its former grandeur.

Live jazz will be playing throughout the evening.

Members are invited to bring two guests. It is a great opportunity to introduce your friends to the College.
